Harriman Magazine, Fall 2019

Monday, September 30, 2019

Ongoing political protests in Russia inspired the cover story and accompanying essays on contemporary Russia and the state of journalism. Nadezhda Azhgikhina dissects and contextualizes the Ivan Golunov Affair in an insightful essay about the current state of Russian investigative journalism and its broader history; David Szakonyi examines the fight against corruption through the lens of the Kremlin’s ongoing anticorruption campaign; and Masha Udensiva-Brenner profiles Maria Zholobova, a Russian investigative journalist who was in residence at the Harriman Institute last spring as our 2019 PKF Fellow. This issue also includes a tribute to our late colleague Seweryn Bialer, with an article about his experiences in postwar Poland and two unpublished draft documents from his personal papers; an article about nonconformist artist Eduard Gorokhovsky; and a piece on ethnic return migration.
