Scenarios for the Russian Federation
The Scenarios for the Russian Federation were developed through a strategic dialogue process engaging over 350 business, policy and academic leaders throughout 2012. The scenarios report focuses on possible future pathways for the Russian economy and pays particular attention to three critical uncertainties: ongoing evolutions in the global energy landscape, the quality of Russia's domestic institutional environment and dynamics of social cohesion within the country. Each scenario is aimed at challenging conventional wisdom and questioning existing assumptions about Russia's economic future. The purpose of these scenarios is to support quality long-term policy and strategy decisions. They are a central area of focus of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2013 in Davos-Klosters, as well as the subject of further strategic dialogues.
