From 1980 on, he broadcasts widely, including tv show "Spas" and radio programs "Geopolitical Overview", "Milestones", "Russian Thing", among others.

He develops a career in the publishing market, having created many journals in the last thirty years, such as Den' (Day), Pamjat (Memory), Elementy (Elements), Zavtra (Tomorrow). He is now the head of Arktogaia, a publishing house especialized in subjects akin to his sphere of interests, linked to many other houses around the globe.
From March, 2015 to March 2017, he held the position of editor-in-chief of Russian TV Tsargrad (internet channel and regular tv), whose main goal is the promotion of traditional values and of international magazine Katehon, specialized in geopolitics and politics.

Leading positions
In 1998 Dugin created with friends Gejdar Dzhemal and Evgenij Golovin the project New University, a studies center based on the discoveries and interests that have been the group's main subject for a long time.
He held from 2008 to 2014 two positions in the Moscovite State University, in the Faculty of Sociology: head of the International Relations Department and head of the Center for Conservative Studies. In 2014, he was unfairly and unappropriately dismissed for political reasons.
He is the leader of the International Eurasian Movement and the founder of the Eurasian Party, which is growing inside the Big Russian Space and gaining ever-increasing representativity.
The leadership of a lot of other institutions has been on his hands through the last twenty years, some of them being the Center of Geopolitical Expertise and the Political Council. In 2005, the Eurasian Youth Union was launched.
Dugin is also a member of the Advisory Board at the Russian State Duma.

Socail activism
Fiercefully opposes the liberal direction taken by the Russian Elite from the 1990s on, using all available means to make prognoses of its course and to denounce it—including interviews with prominent characters in the international political scene.

Connections with the political sphere
Dugin has been a constant political actor in diverse situations, especially concerned with the geopolitical aspect of Politics, which gives him ever-increasing fame, mainly in ideas concerning Eurasianism and Multipolarity. Therefore, he has been a strong supporter of president Putin's policies in Internal and External Affairs—and there is good evidence that president Putin is taking Dugin's advices very seriously.
He has also met and gained the respect of Nursultan Nazarbaev, Kazakhstan's president, Serbian Prime-Minister Vojislav Koštunica and other important political figures.

Internet

Recent political issues
Due to his political views that denounce the terrible effects of the liberal mind-frame from a new standpoint - neither Communism, nor Fascism, both easily defeatable in our days -, Alexandr Dugin suffered sanctions from the USA and Canada in 2015 - lasting until now. The sanctions have not been explained and were found out by chance by some friends. Cosmoliberals in those countries consider him the most dangerous philosoher in the world.
