Государственное и рыночное регулирование трудовой активности пенсионеров
We analyze the existing state and market mechanisms for regulation of labour activity of Russian old-age pensioners and their role in the formation of appropriate age categorization in the labour market, as well as the impact of
this on employment of old-age pensioners. The Russian model of labour regulation is found to be neutral with regard to age and pension status. Within this model, the ‘capable’ are expected to compete in the job market, while
all those who are ‘incapable’ should receive social protection. The labour market reacts to this with its own interpretation of the bounds of ‘acceptable and unacceptable age’ in hiring effective employees. De facto, this results
in widespread age discrimination or ‘ageism’ in practices of recruitment (sometimes in direct, but more often in indirect form), as well as in age segmentation of the labour market followed by qualitative changes to the job character of older people. Those working old-age people looking to change their jobs are, thus, the most vulnerable category. Not only do they lose out to younger workers while competing for jobs, they also suffer from inferior work conditions with respect to their peers, who preserve their existing job positions. The findings of this paper are based on empirical study of age discrimination in the Russian labour market conducted by the authors in 2012–2015. We used a combination of quantitative methods – employment statistics, representative sample data of the 24th wave of the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey, as well as job advertisements content analysis and qualitative methods, such as expert interviews with HR managers, as well as an analysis of the legislative framework.

In recent years the role of anti-monopoly policy in Russia has grown significantly. The enforcement power of the anti-trust agency has increased dramatically. At the same time adverse trends in competition policy have emerged and strengthened. The main reason was, paradoxically, a growing role of anti-trust policy in the Russian government. The enforcement of anti-trust rules is expected to result immediately in control of the price level and/or support of a defined group of market participants (e.g. suppliers of food products). In this context legal rules are changing in a way that leads to an increase in the number of false positives (type I errors) in anti-trust cases. False positives not only impose a burden on the accused but also distort the incentives of market participants, restrain potentially efficient business practices and also paradoxically can prevent competition. This article considers three examples of adverse development of anti-trust rules in Russia: regulation of trading activity, rules on collusion and excessive prices of collectively dominant market participants, and rules on discrimination as an abuse of a dominant position.

Terrorism poses an undeniable threat to societies throughout the world today. Martyr terrorism, the latest growing form of terrorist activity, and arguably the most effective, has become a regular occurrence. But how has terrorist activity evolved in the last 100 years, and what are the ethical costs of terrorism? In this informative book, three philosophers, all experts in the ethics of conflict, examine the various definitions of terrorism and the nature of martyr terrorism. Through accounts of terrorist campaigns, from nineteenth century Russian terrorism, to the twentieth century campaigns in Ireland, Israel and Greece, and contemporary campaigns in Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq, the book explores the ethical implications of terrorism from a philosophical perspective. Setting out the social, psychological and political causes of terrorism, the book interrogates the cases for and against terrorist activity in terms of just war theory.
Several approaches to the concept of fatherhood present in Western sociological tradition are analyzed and compared: biological determinism, social constructivism and biosocial theory. The problematics of fatherhood and men’s parental practices is marginalized in modern Russian social research devoted to family and this fact makes the traditional inequality in family relations, when the father’s role is considered secondary compared to that of mother, even stronger. However, in Western critical men’s studies several stages can be outlined: the development of “sex roles” paradigm (biological determinism), the emergence of the hegemonic masculinity concept, inter-disciplinary stage (biosocial theory). According to the approach of biological determinism, the role of a father is that of the patriarch, he continues the family line and serves as a model for his ascendants. Social constructivism looks into man’s functions in the family from the point of view of masculine pressure and establishing hegemony over a woman and children. Biosocial theory aims to unite the biological determinacy of fatherhood with social, cultural and personal context. It is shown that these approaches are directly connected with the level of the society development, marriage and family perceptions, the level of egality of gender order.
