Catch up on our latest research on the topic of Russia.
To elicit deeper knowledge and understanding about this topic a variety of new methods are introduced including open-source text- and data-sets and -mining tools explored through both human analysis and (supervised and unsupervised) machine-learning algorithms. This should generate a new visual and interactive knowledge base on Russia. The RuBase will serve as a platform for Russian experts in the field to explore new collaborative ways of cumulative knowledge building on this topic that is only gaining in policy relevance.
What is RuBase?
This multi-year project sets out to explore new text- and number-based datasets, -tools and methods, using a corpus systematically compiled through relevant search queries, combined with different additional data sets like elite opinion surveys, event data sets (GDELT, ICEWS, Phoenix, TERRIER), economic, demographic, military, political datasets, to improve our knowledge about Russia’s multi-domain coercion/international behaviour more broadly. It will yield a new knowledge base on Russia (RuBase) that will be highly visual and interactive.
