Политическая элита глазами российских парламентариев

The authors analyze Russian parliamentarians’ normative notions of the political elite. The research is based on 50 interviews with the members of the State Duma. In the majority of cases respondents share similar views on the role, functions, and main features of an "ideal" political elite. Moreover, the results of the research demonstrate that parliamentarians’ normative notions and their perception of current political situation are basically the same: respondents are often of opinion that the actual political elite is normal and even near to the ideal one.
