About the Academy

The Academy is focused on examining public policy via the Internet.

1.  Post-Soviet Countries.  The Academy was founded in 1987 when enormous changes were occurring in countries in Eastern Europe. Much has changed since 1991 when the Soviet Union collapsed, and Dr. Richard Rahn has travelled throughout the former Soviet Union in order to report on changes that have occurred. Here is a documentary Dr. Rahn produced about the former Soviet Republic of Estonia.

On June 13, the Academy Webcast a presentation that traces how Poland is attempting to recover from domination by the former Soviet Union. You may access Dr. Marek Chodakiewicz‘ presentation titled “Losing My Country Twice and Finding it Once” at the American Academy of Distance Learning’s YouTube channel. 

2. Webcasts: By means of Internet delivered Webcasts, the Academy provides a public space for discussion of important subjects. Here are links to previous Webcasts.
