Eurasianism refers to certain pro-Russian political ideologies/movements, having characteristics such as emphasizing (northern) Eurasia as a major geopolitical concept.

It originated among White émigrés from Russia in the 1920s, having associations with the Conservative Revolutionary movement and National Bolshevism, in particular skepticism regarding liberalism viewed as associated with England/the United States. It is claimed to have declined in influence, in part due to Soviet counter-operations.

Neo-Eurasianism refers to a more recent revival in Russia, in particular associated with Aleksandr Dugin, characteristics including differentiating between liberal Atlanticists and Eurasianists. Related organizations include the Eurasia Party and the Eurasian Youth Union.
