Abstract: Celem artykułu jest wskazanie na współpracę naukowo-badawczą jako sposób reintegracji regionu bałtyckiego w XXI wieku z udziałemRosji. Dokonane zostaje to przez analizę tekstów dokumentów i strategii regionalizmubałtyckiego w kontekście regionalnego reżimu wiedzy. Zwróconazostaje uwaga na różną pozycjonalność aktorów regionalnych i wytwarzanychprzez nich narracji. Teoretyczną osnowę pracy stanowi analiza teoriizwrotów krytycznych (critical junctures) w kontekście studiów przypadkówz lat 1989-91 i 2014 oraz następujących po nich rekonfiguracji relacji władzyi wiedzy. Analiza wykazuje, że przyczyniają się one aktywnie do tworzeniai zmieniania treści i kontekstu regionalizmu bałtyckiego w oparciu o nowekapitały symboliczne, ekonomiczne i polityczne. W konkluzji artykuł wskazuje na potencjał wynikający z włączenia Rosji do współtworzenia regionalnegoreżimu wiedzy oraz określa warunki i sposoby możliwej współpracy.
