The BEARR Trust has pleasure in inviting you to its 2007 Annual Lecture

by Dr Alex Pravda, St Antonyï¿½s College, Oxford.
The lecture will be held at the European Bank for Reconstruction and

Dr Pravda is one of the UKï¿½s pre-eminent experts on Russian foreign policy

Fellow of St Antonyï¿½s College, Oxford, and previously worked at Chatham
House, at universities in the UK and USA, and as adviser to the House of
Commons Foreign Affairs Committee.
The President of the EBRD, Jean Lemierre, will welcome the guests.
The lecture will be followed by a reception, which will allow for further
discussion and networking with others with an interest in the field.
The BEARR Trust is an NGO dedicated to working with Russian (and other

build democracy and to bring sustainable prosperity to peoples and
