The course surveys both the history and the contemporary situation of the Russian Orthodox Church and its relation to the Russian State. During the course we discuss the church’s rising political influence and the role of Patriarch Kirill I (Gundiaev) in this process, ROC’s role within the Russian military, and the phenomenon of “political orthodoxy”. We pay special attention to the rise of radical nationalistic orthodox groups, and the ROC’s prosecution of some art exhibition and performances during the last decade.

The course is organized in cooperation with Aleksanteri Institute's Russian and East European Master's School.

Situation at the labour market in Russia is still conditioned by character of labour relations formed in the Soviet Union. Transformation of economic-political system in the second half of 1980s led to gradual overcoming of ‘relic’ forms of out-economic compulsion in the labour sphere and forming labour market. Labour market as a global socio-economic system has essentially transformed on the way to the socio-oriented market economy; however, it has not yet measured up the western liberal model of labour relations. Mismatch between formal and informal labour market institutions led to forming ineffective models of behavior from the part of social subjects, fixation of these models and creation of sustainable ineffective establishments.

Content of the course:

  1. Introduction to the course. Russian model of labor market: general description.
  2. Historical aspects and specificity of the Russian labor market’s development. From administrative-command to the market economy and to the human-oriented labor market.
  3. Transitive economy, decentralization of power, transformation of regional labor markets and imbalance in their development.  
  4. Institutional modernization of Russian labor markets.  
  5. The Employment Policy in Russia.
  6. Formal and Informal Employment in Russia.
  7. Unemployment.
  8. Mobility of work places. Dynamics. Migration.
  9. Quality of Employment.

Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Module, University of Tampere

Stepping Stones to Working Life in the Field of EU-Russia Relations (STEPIN) is a bridge between the final stages of university studies at the Master’s level and the professional life. STEPIN consists of an intensive, one-week tailor-made training course on EU issues (EU-Russia relations in particular) with special relevance to the students orienting themselves in the working life. Focusing on skills and knowledge in a transversal sense, the training course provides the students with a concrete introduction to professional life in the academia, research institutes, administration, policy-making and the private sector, NGOs and civil society. It emphasizes learning by doing and active participation of the students, teaching staff and visitors, with the aim of increased familiarity with the expectations of potential employers, actual career paths and experiences, and deeper understanding of the relevance of the students’ expertise and skills and different ways of putting them to use.

The course will be organized for the first time on 9-13 March 2015. Both Master's level and post-graduate students can take part, particularly those writing their theses on topics related to the EU and/or Russia. The language of the course will be mainly English, with practical exercises conducted also in Finnish. During the week, the daily programme will run approximately from 10 am to 4 pm. Friday’s programme takes place in Helsinki.

Thematically, this years’ course concentrates on the EU sanctions towards Russia. A public seminar on this topic will start the week. As to the practical skills, special emphasis will be given to the interplay of media and research, and communication skills (exercises). Specificities of Russian media and questions about the EU in the media will also be looked at. A detailed programme will follow.

Completing the course requires written work both before and after the week’s programme, and will give 5 ECTS (e.g., as part of POLKVS32).
