By Valérie Berenger

This article analyzes the pension system reforms in post-transition Russia and compares them to pension reforms in other countries.

It must take into account past commitments, the aims of the pension system and the budgetary framework in which the pension system operates. . JEL codes: H55, I38, J32, P36
