Экспертократия в России
“Expertocracy in Russia” by Anatoly Nesterov (State University Higher School of Economics , Moscow): This article considers the meaning of the terms “expertocracy” and “expertocrat,” which in the contemporary Russian Federation are newly constructed words based linguistically, but not conceptually, from the English loan word “expertise.” This article considers the meaning of the terms “expertocracy” and “expertocrat,” which in the contemporary Russian Federation are newly constructed words based linguistically, but not conceptually, from the English loan word “expertise.” A socio-economic analysis of the theory of expertise reveals that the activities of the new expertocrats (many of whom self-identify with this term) do not relate to traditional notions of expertise, particularly within today's Russian state apparatus and the private sector. Instead, this article explores the new social phenomena of “expertocracy” and “expertocrats” as well as the arrival of a newly rebranded buzzword, “narrative,” which has taken on new meaning aside from its historical and cultural interpretation and can now be used to describe the activities of the newly emergent expertocrat class in Russia.
Formation of democratic societies of the Western type presupposes appearance on the historical scene of a new strong actor - the bourgeois class: "No bourgeoisie, no democracy" (Barrington Moore). The articulation and defense of vital interests of that class creates a new social space - "the bourgeois public sphere" which helps to make up "counterbalance" to absolutism of a corporate state - a civil society, the core of which is composed by public opinion. In the confrontation between the authorities and society one of the most important roles is played by the press that provides free debate and discussion of generally valid problems, especially economic and political. The recognition of the mass media role was stamped in its characterization in XIII century as "the fourth power". Technological development of the media incredibly expanded its functions, turning journalists into creating informational analogue of reality, saturating daily life with new meanings. Methods of the representation of reality, the specific nature of political influence of journalists - key members of the reflexive elites (Helmut Shelski), are the themes of this article.

The article is devoted to a particular form of freedom of assembly — the right to counter-demonstrate. The author underlines the value of this right as an element of democratic society, but also acknowledges the risk of violent actions among participants of opposing demonstrations. Due to this risk, the government may adopt adequate measures restricting the right to counter-demonstrate, certain types of which are analyzed in this paper.
