The Centre for Eurasian and Russian Studies (CEURUS) is a multidisciplinary centre for research, teaching and public outreach at the University of Tartu (UT), Estonia. It serves as a contact point for scholars, students and members of the public who share an interest in the past, present and future of the Eurasian space, historically shaped by the Russian empire and the Soviet project.

The CEURUS team puts particular emphasis on comparative approaches that highlight the distinctiveness of Eurasia in the international context and the interplay between local, regional and global patterns of social development. CEURUS coordinates and sponsors a variety of activities related to research and teaching. It serves as a source of expert knowledge on Russia and Eurasia for the media, educational institutions and the general public in Estonia, the Baltic Sea region and beyond. Building on Tartu’s long history as a meeting place of ideas and cultures, it sees its role in facilitating intellectual exchange across geopolitical divides and in making state-of-the-art research available to everyone, everywhere.
