Objective assessment of reforms in politics are hard to find in the region. We provide analysis in order to facilitate advocacy on key issues and we provide training for public advocacy groups on how to use research to support their arguments. We also offer analysis of the political climate to help national and international organizations make decisions about their role in oversight and investment.

Evaluation of Russian Grain Export Ban (2011)
This report, written for Oxfam Moscow, looks at the short- and long-term impact of the grain export ban issued by the Russian government during 2010-11. It shows that the ban did not bring food prices down in Russia, that it increased the price of grain internationally, and helped create an enviroment where price spikes and general instability are far more likely in the future. The report concludes with recommendations for alternative policies to increase food security in the future.
