John Round's research is concerned with the social and political geographies emerging from the collapse of the Soviet Union. He is particularly interested in the forms of individual/community coping strategies developed as a response to the economic marginalisation which has occurred across post-Soviet regions. He explores how such practices are spatially constructed, revealing unequal power dynamics in state-society relations and the role that corruption plays in everyday life.
