The USSR occupied nearly one-sixth of the Earth’s land surface, including the eastern half of Europe and nearly a third of Asia. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, successor states continue to experience the political, economic and security effects of 70 years of Soviet rule even though some of the states are the member of European Union already. The environmental degradation occurring on such an extensive territory influences the processes of climate change of the planet. Therefore, it is essential to know if post-soviet states recognise an existing challenge, realise its significance, have the will and capacity to address it. However, Russia and post-Soviet countries are a “blind spot” on the map of sustainability studies, especially in understanding the configuration of stakeholders, their capacities, interests, and power dynamics in the processes of transitions to sustainability. To address this gap, the proposed panel aims to initiate the building of knowledge infrastructure to enable a context-specific and problem-oriented learning space for understanding sustainability transitions scenarios of post-Soviet countries.
