As Vladimir Putin prepares to return to the presidency in the 2012 elections, the prospects for Russia's future are unclear. "Russia in 2020" brings together leading experts to analyze the possible scenarios for Russia's development in the next decade and the risks that lie ahead. Despite Putin's eminent return, the authors believe that the so-called Putin Era is over. This does not mean that Putin will soon give up power, but the political and economic system he created is incapable of dealing with Russia's rapidly changing conditions. Crises are likely unavoidable unless Russia changes and modernizes.
