Road to Success


“Road to Success” is an educational project that takes place in a mixed format: online and offline. It includes lectures, seminars, master-classes, trainings and other educational events designed for a wide audience, as “roundtable discussion” with participation of Russian and foreign experts in the field of international relations, media communications, sociological and political science research, intercultural communication, etc.
