Welcome to the International Research Laboratory “Transnationalism and Migration Processes: Comparative and Institutional Analysis” (TANDeM) at St. Petersburg State University!
It is with this in mind that the agenda at TANDEM is being developed, seeking to play a part in redressing this situation. Such an agenda will build on both empirical research and theoretical developments derived from other places around the globe, but always with attentiveness to distinctive regional variations. Indeed, the task ahead is not only to expand the body of empirical research on Russia, but to reflect on whether or not existing conceptual frameworks are in need of revision in order to adequately account for unique features of the Russian case.
