‘Global Russians’: A Case Study of Transnational Actors in World Politics

Abstract : Transnational actors with Russian origins have recently appeared on the global stage and become influential in world politics. In this article we revisit the theoretical debate about subgroups within the Russian diaspora such as ‘Russian compatriots’, representatives of the ‘Russian world’ (Russkii mir) and so-called ‘Global Russians’. Filling a gap in the scholarly analysis, we define Global Russians as individuals who self-identify with Russian civilisation and actively engage in Russian political, social or cultural affairs while living abroad and contributing to business, academic and cultural life at a global level.
