Promoting Public Citizenship in the 21st Century: Russian and American Perspectives on Public Oversight of the State

This discussion featured three Russian experts who have each spent time at the Wilson Center (with support from the U.S. Embassy, Moscow’s “Peer-to-Peer Program”). The panel compared the Russian and American experience and practice of public oversight. The results of their study include both expected and unexpected findings. For example, while U.S.-based organizations that work on government oversight are older and operate in a freer environment, there are areas where Russian groups and individuals are able to access state information faster and more reliably.
