Institutional Variation Among Russian Regional Regimes: Implications for Social Policy and the Development of Non-governmental Organizations

Remington T. F.

Russian regions exhibit wide diversity in institutional arrangements, not only due to varying natural conditions and economic development, but also due to the different political strategies pursued by their governors. Governors have wide discretion over the kinds of relationships they establish with local economic and social elites in the pursuit of nationally established goals. Some regional regimes are more pluralistic, others more authoritarian. Strategies for social and economic development vary as well.

Characteristically, it is state actors who usually take the initiative in shaping state–society relations.
