This book analyses the role of regional governments in the trade policy of the Russian Federation. It examines regional trade-related policies, such as subsidies, taxes and licensing, and their implications for Russia's international  trade commitments, and in particular its negotiations for accession to the  World Trade Organisation. In effect, when the Russian Federation accedes to  the WTO, it will be required to ensure that the laws and administrative practices of its sub-national governments are in conformity with its WTO  commitments.

This paper examines the effects of privatization on labor and analyzes the mechanisms that governments can use to minimize the political and social costs of labor restructuring in privatization, by drawing on the experience of mixed economies.
