As Russia seeks to become more influential on the geopolitical stage, the country’s aspirations are clouded by economic volatility and international sanctions on its energy and financial sectors. In this timely presentation, Wharton Professor Philip Nichols sheds light on Russia’s shadowy and tangled web of government corruption, increasing nationalism, and political power plays.

Professor Nichols teaches and conducts research on social and economic development, emerging economies, and corruption. He has worked extensively in Russia with major businesses and universities on programs for reducing corruption. His involvement has ranged from program development at the corporation level, teaching materials for local universities, and organizing an annual conference on business culture in St. Petersburg. Likewise, he travels regularly to advise a working group focused on the transition to a democratic market-oriented system in Russia.
