Nina Lvovna Khrushcheva (Нина Львовна Хрущёва, /xrʊ.ˈɕo.və/; born 1964) is a Russian-American Professor of International Affairs at The New School, New York, USA, a Senior Fellow of the World Policy Institute, New York, USA, and a Contributing Editor to Project Syndicate: Association of Newspapers Around the World.
Khrushcheva is the granddaughter of Leonid Khrushchev, eldest son of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. When Leonid died in World War II, Nikita adopted Leonid's two-year-old daughter Julia, Nina's mother. Nikita Khrushchev is thus Nina Khrushcheva's biological great-grandfather, but adoptive grandfather. Khrushcheva's father, Lev Petrov, died in 1970, aged 47.
From 2002 to 2004, Khrushcheva was an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, New York, USA. Khrushcheva is currently a Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs at The New School in New York.
Khrushcheva is the author of numerous articles, director of the Russia Project at the World Policy Institute, contributor to Project Syndicate: Association of Newspapers Around the World, and editor of Project Syndicate's Russia column. Her articles have appeared in Newsweek, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times and other publications.
She had a two-year research appointment at the School of Historical Studies of Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and then served as Deputy Editor of East European Constitutional Review at NYU School of Law. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a recipient of Great Immigrants: The Pride of America Award from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
