Dear all


We’d like to introduce a major special issue in the journal critical perspectives on international business.  ‘Russia: as solid as a BRIC?’ is guest edited by Snejina Michailova, Daniel McCarthy and Sheila Puffer.


The issue highlights Russia's strengths that have been the foundation of its membership in the BRICs, but also recognises the weaknesses that have led to an ambivalence about retention of this status.


Free access to the papers has been set up until the end of April – please click here to access the papers, which are also listed below.

Best wishes
