Given its institutional setting and its history, the ATLAS Collaboration is inevitably a multidimensional project. In addition to fulfilling clearly defined scientific goals, one of its other related aims is to preserve and promote the open and international character of its scientific ethos. This could be described as a political aim. The birth in the 17th century of scientific institutions such as the Royal Society in England and the Académie des Sciences in France was also in part motivated by a need to allow Europe's emerging scientific culture to cross national, religious, and political boundaries. CERN, and with it ATLAS, are thus defending well-established and core scientific values. How might living up to these values show up in the way that the work of building the detector is allocated to the 174 institutes drawn from different countries participating in the collaboration? This chapter explores the issue by focusing on the participation of one country: Russia.
