Политические машины и политический клиентелизм в российских регионах

Политическая наука. 2017. № 4. С. 61-84.

The article is dedicated to the foundations of electoral clientelism employed by the regional machines in Russia. The author uses qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) in order to analyze the data from 25 regional campaigns in 2015 generated by the PEI expert survey. The degree of clientelism by the Russian regional machines can be explained by the availability of controlled voters’ constituencies. At the same time clientelism resulted from a low infrastructural capacity and inability to prevent electoral competition by the administrative means.
