Conservative Jurisprudence and the Russian State

Europe-Asia Studies. 2017. Vol. 69. No. 8. P. 1145-1152.

This article offers a variety of approaches on how to conceptualise Russian legal responses to these globalised challenges and think about future legal developments. The scholars who have contributed to this volume examine a number of issues analysing human rights, migration law, the Russian approach to international criminal law, free speech, the concepts of state and society and the Crimean crisis. The analytical material and empirical evidence they offer could be further conceptualised within the framework of conservative jurisprudence: the Russian legal profession and scholarship have been slowly adapting to it as a method of dealing with the law rather than as an ideology or practical tool for legal implementation. In this Introduction, I focus on how conservative jurisprudence works in the Russian environment to further offer a useful framework for thinking about Russian law.
