THE LIBERAL DOCTRINE OF CIVIL RIGHTS IN LATE IMPERIAL RUSSIA: A history of the struggle for the rule of law

Cahiers du Monde Russe. 2016. Vol. 57. No. 4. P. 791-818.

The establishment of civil rights as a foundation for the political-legal doctrine of Russian liberalism is based on a strong historical tradition. The author`s intention is to discuss Late Imperial Russia’s experience in designing a logical, unified construction of inviolable personal rights of individuals, which was a theoretical justification for the constitutionalism of the early 20th century.
