Health and Addiction in Ukraine and Russia: Insights on Gender and Ethnicity (PANEL R13) -- This interdisciplinary panel brought together three papers examining the ways in which individual health status and health related behaviors are constructed and interpreted by states, societies and markets. The papers each stem from research supported by a Ford Foundation supported project to expand social science research in the Russian Federation on health and health related issues, coordinated by the Social Science Research Council. The core themes for the panel: identity, ethnicity, gender, stigma and adaptation, relate to well to the central theme of the 2011 ASN conference, “Charting the Nation between State and Society.”
