Право и справедливость в политических дебатах постсоветского периода

Should the loyal citizen obey unlawful laws? What is the relationship between positive law and justice in the context of rapid social change? By which criteria are we to appreciate them? What are the views of professional lawyers, as well as those of different political opinions: conservatives, liberals, and 'left-wingers'? To clarify the unsolved character of this question, and the growing divorce between positive law and the notion of justice in post-Soviet Russia, the author demonstrates the competitive character and variability of strategies for the juridical construction of reality regarding such key parameters as property relations, national identity, state and the political establishment. He presents his own vision of the rational combination of the legitimacy, legality and efficiency of juridical decisions in order to overcome the conflict of law and justice, legality and efficiency, and political reason and the social ideal.
