Dimitry Kochenov: 'Quality of post-Soviet nationalities remains relatively low'

03 June 2016
Prof. Dimitry Kochenov

Prof. Dimitry Kochenov (EU Constitutional Law) gave an interview on the measurement of the quality of world nationalities to the main Russian business daily, Kommersant, which ran a big story dedicated to the Quality of Nationality Index, which Dimitry released together with Henley & Partners, a leading citizenship law firm (in Russian). The interview, focusing on the nationalities of the former Soviet Union, outlines the reasons for the relatively poor performance of the nationalities of this region when compared with the rest of the world (in Russian).

Prof. Dimitry Kochenov also spoke with the Russian Service of the BBC explaining how the Quality of Nationality Index works and to analyze the position of the key European nationalities in the index (in Russian). The Central Asian Service organised a very similar interview, but with an emphasis on the quality of the nationalities of Central Asia (in Uzbek).

'Profil', one of the leading Russian journals, published a detailed article which provides a broad yet relatively detailed overview of the Quality of Nationality in the world drawing on the QNI index (in Russian).
