lecturing & consulting

I have over 10 years of diplomatic and academic experience dealing with the post-Soviet area, Russia in the Baltic Sea Region, and EU foreign policy. I have published in renowned academic journals in Europe and the U.S. Throughout this time, I have written and supervised tens of analytical pieces for European policymakers: heads of state, heads of government, and ambassadors. I spent over 3 years living in Russia and 2 years in Brussels. I was part of OSCE Election Observation Missions to Belarus and Ukraine. All in all, my experience has a clear practical dimension.

I have advised government agencies and private companies on how to operate in a highly volatile post-Soviet political, security, and business environment. My analyses have involved Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, and Central Asian states, and tackled migration law, geopolitical interests of various parties, security situation, energy markets, and long-term political stability.

I am based in Copenhagen and I welcome opportunities to collaborate with Danish and Scandinavian public and private institutions. My expertise covers:
+ Russian imperial narrative & Russian political culture.
+ Security in the Baltic Sea Region.
+ Kaliningrad Oblast & Denmark’s security.
+ Cultural encounters when doing business in post-Soviet area.
+ Geopolitical challenges & business opportunities in post-Soviet area.
+ Doing business in Poland.

Depending on the topic, audience, and time for preparations, my guest lecture fee usually amounts for 10,000-20,000 kr. Remuneration for analytical papers depends on their topic and length, and in most cases amounts for 150,000-250,000 kr.
