Introducing Professor Sergei Golunov, Visiting Scholar to the Slavic Eurasian Research Centre
We are pleased to have Professor Serghei Golunov as our new visiting scholar to the Slavic Eurasian Research Centre. Professor Golunov's research area includes the border issues between Russia and EU and as well as the former Soviet bloc. He taught at Volgograd State University in Russia, but has also spent some time conducting research in London and Tartu (Estonia). He is an expert on the current status of border studies in EU countries, and is also well known for his unique approach to border studies by exploring themes such as corruption and smuggling. His recent publication include EU-Russian Border Security: Challenges, (Mis) Perceptions and Responses (Routledge). He will be staying at the Centre until March 2015 and is expected to present his research achievements at the Centre's winter symposium and various seminars and exchange information with the border studies communities around the world.
