The collapse of communist power in the Soviet Union and subsequent measures to establish a private sector have created opportunities for both foreign and domestic private capital in Russia and the non-Russian republics of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Investment Opportunities in Russia and the CIS contains papers published by the Post-Soviet Business Forum at the Royal Institute of International Affairs that have been revised for this volume. It provides a sober, long-term assessment of investment priorities in the former Soviet Union and of the problems and prospects for success that potential investors will encounter.

Julian Cooper addresses the lessons emerging from the conversion of the former Soviet defense industry to civilian production. William Butler assesses the issues involved in creating the legal structure necessary to facilitate private investment, paying particular attention to questions of ownership, investment, and company law.
