Professor Stefan Hedlund

STEFAN Hedlund is Professor and Research Director at the Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies, at Uppsala University, Sweden.


He trained as an economist and has specialised in Russian affairs since the final days of Leonid Brezhnev in the early 1980s. His research interests have branched far beyond economics over the years but have, above all, included a devouring interest in Russian history.


He has published extensively on matters ranging from the Soviet system to post-Soviet transition, and institutional dimensions of the interaction between state and market in a modern economy. He has published more than 20 books, some 200 journal and magazine articles and well over 300 reviews and op-ed pieces.


Professor Hedlund has travelled and lectured widely in academic as well as business contexts. He has taken two sabbatical semesters at Harvard University in the United States and been a visiting scholar in academic institutions ranging from Stanford University in California to Hokkaido University in Japan and Washington, DC.


His latest book 'Putin’s Energy Agenda: The Contradictions of Russia’s Resource Wealth' was published by Lynne Rienner Publishers of Boulder, Colorado, United States in May 2014. He wrote ‘Invisible Hands, Russian Experience and Social Science: Approaches to Understanding Systemic Failure’ which was published by Cambridge University Press, in 2011.
