Write an article

Know of a development project that has had measurable impact? Have research to share? Hope to draw attention to an important national or regional issue? Then write an article. First, send a short abstract (a summary) of your intended piece (in English or Russian) to developmentandtransition(at) for review by the editors. If we like your idea, we’ll ask you to write up the full article (1,000 words). We reserve the right to edit for style and length.
