Mark Galeotti

I specialize in fairly murky and morally-dubious subjects: modern Russian history and security affairs and transnational and organized crime of both past and present. Educated at Robinson College, Cambridge and the London School of Economics, I was based at Keele 1991-2008, becoming head of the History department before moving to New York University in January 2009, where I am Clinical Professor in Global Affairs at the Center for Global Affairs.
