The author considers three generations of foresight to identify the vector and the logic of its development in order to build theoretical foundation and methodology of foresight in a knowledge-based economy. The article reveals that as the new economy comes into being and develops, a shift from the paradigm of linearity to complexity paradigm, from considering an object under research as a closed and static system to adaptive, dynamic, open, self-organizing systems of a new complexity level, developing in a globalizing economy, in rapidly changing environments with high level of uncertainty, occurs. Theoretical basis should be the theory of evolution, complexity and chaos.

The reality of international relations is such that the modern Eurasian integration project is primarily the interaction of information and communication spaces and elaboration of a common value-based worldview in key areas. In this context, formation of Russia’s positive image in conditions of international turbulence and transformation of the global order is becoming an important foreign policy task. The prospects for development and practical application of public diplomacy in the Eurasian space depend on two fundamentally important circumstances: first of all, on expansion of the subject dialogue, involvement in it of increasingly specific and even delicate issues of Eurasian integration rapprochement, and secondly, on creation of a system of multilateral dialogue sites with participation of the state and non-state actors not only from the EAEU countries, but also of their regional environment. In his interview with Larisa Polkovnikova the Deputy Executive Director of the Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund, executive director of the Primakov Center for Foreign Policy Cooperation Roman Nikolaevich Grishenin told about the need for developing a strategic initiative in this context and about the integration resources of the civil society.

An attempt to establish a rule of law in Russia resulted in creation of a very complicated and inefficient legal system. Some Russian laws have a Soviet, if not earlier, origin, others are related to international and foreign law, yet others are the fruit of the State Duma thinking activity, still others are composed by executive authority or even its separate branches, since regional and local legislation also exists. In this paper, the authors analyze Russian legislation applying the “communal conception” of laws, that is without making a formal distinction between properly laws and normative acts that are in force throughout the whole territory of the Russian Federation and binding for execution.
