As a Senior Fellow at the Watson Institute for International Studies, Dr. Sergei Khrushchev focuses his research on the former Soviet Union’s transition from a centralized to a decentralized society, as well as its transformation from a central to a market economy and its international security during this transition. One of his points of interest is the creation of a criminal society in Russia as a consequence of the mistakes in the early stages of market reformation. He is also interested in the history of the Cold War and the turning points in relations between the US and the Soviet Union in the Khrushchev, Eisenhower, and Kennedy periods. Another focus of Dr. Khrushchev’s interests is the history of Soviet missiles and space development, in which he played an active role, from 1958-1968.
