This edition focuses on Russia's views on and role in Global Governance. In the first article, Andrei Tsygankov examines Russia's current foreign policy trajectory and its approach of attempting to bridge the principles of multipolarity and multilateral decision-making within global governance structures. In the second article, Mark Katz considers Russia's position on three contemporary global security issues – Iran, Libya and Syria. Katz suggests that in spite of Russia's permanent membership of the UN Security Council, these three cases illustrate that the UNSC remains a highly problematic arena for Russia. In the third article, Maria Tysiachniouk examines the ongoing process of international certification, via the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), of the Russian forest sector, and highlights that this process is providing the Russian forest industry access to European markets, and at the same time leading it to incorporate global practices of sustainable forest management into its local practices.
