Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the historical stages of the consular service's formation. It also examines the problems of democratic transition with regard to strengthening humanitarian aspects and human rights protection, greater openness and transparency. The chapter explains how the Russian consular service reacts to globalization trends, which condition the reinforcing of economic components of Russian external policy and the growing influx of Russian businessmen and tourists abroad. Globalization also increases migration flows, particularly within the Community of Independent States (CIS), and exacerbates security issues. Finally, the chapter reviews the application of advanced technology to consular services as another challenge for Russian diplomacy, as it requires higher qualification skills for consular staff and expensive office equipment.

Keywords:Community of Independent States (CIS); consular service; globalization; human rights protection; Russia
