The round table “Current State and Prospects of the Social and Market Research  in Russia” was held April 4, 2014 as a part of the XV April International  Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development, HSE (Moscow).  Two main presentations were made by Sergey Protsenko (South-Russian  Research Center “Factor”; Association of Regional Sociological Centers  “Group 7/89”) and Andrey Yakovlev (Institute for Industrial and Market  Studies, HSE; Association of Russian Economic Think Tanks (ARETT)). The  round table chaired by Alexander Chepurenko (dean of the Faculty of Sociology,  HSE) was also attended by Vasily Tokarev (Center “ANALYST”, Volgograd),  Vladimir Zvonovsky (Social surveys fund, Samara), Alexander Demidov (GFK,  Moscow), Oleg Dembo (“O+K”, international research association ESOMAR,  St. Petersburg), Igor Zadorin (ZIRCON, Moscow), Stepan Lvov (Russian  Public Opinion Research Center, Moscow), Vadim Radaev (Laboratory for Studies in Economic Sociology,  HSE, Moscow), etc. The main subject of the round table was the changes in the structure and development trends in the Russian  sociological research market. Paradoxically, today sociological research industry in Russia remains poorly  studied, despite the fact that its members are engaged in active exploration of other markets and services. As  Alexander Chepurenko noted “The cobbler always wears the worst shoes.” This statement perfectly reflects  the current situation of Russian sociologists who have little to say about the market size and the composition  of members as well as about the general idea of the major problems faced by Russian research companies  nowadays. The article represents the current state and main types of participants of Russian market for  sociological research, describes the main trends as well as the key issues, challenges and solutions in the  industry and provides the market prospects in the near future.

Most of existing studies of social mobility in the post-Soviet Russia provide measurements in terms of absolute mobility. However, the problem with such measurements is that they do not account for the structural differences when applied for cross-temporal (or cross-national) comparisons (which might be caused, for instance, by the change in the relative number of certain occupations, the expansion of higher education, etc.). Thus,  absolute mobility (be it downward, upward or no mobility at all) does not distinguish the change which is caused by the institutional (i.e.  qualitative), rather than the structural (i.e. quantitative) change. In this project we aim to fill in this gap and to analyze the dynamics  of relative social mobility (i.e. mobility “net” of structural factors) in the post-Soviet period. Precisely, we would use the so called log-linear  and log-multiplicative models designed to analyze contingency tables. By social mobility in this research we will understand intra- and intergenerational individual shifts in terms of occupational status, education and spatial (i.e. urban/rural) location.

The paper is devoted to formation of social relations among firms. To explain how business relations emerge of the author examines selection criteria used by retailers and their suppliers for finding exchange partners in the contemporary Russian consumer markets. Based on the structural (network) perspective in economic sociology the paper demonstrates that business partner selection mechanism is a complex procedure which cannot be reduced to evaluation of profitability of transactions but has to take into account identity of exchange partners. Empirical data were collected from a standardized survey of 500 managers of retailers and their suppliers in five cities of Russia

The act of purchase and sale cannot be realized without product quality evaluation and price reasonableness analysis. In this respect, the processes of definition, stabilization and institutionalization of categories, revealing the contents of goods become of key importance in the framework of contemporary markets. This article reconstructs categories which operationalize the content and quality of Moscow dental market health services and reveals the social order effective there. The article non only analyzes the content of commercial clinics marketing efforts directed at qualifications of their services, but the representation of the quality of the different participants in this market (doctors, managers of clinics and patients) as well. Special attention is given to the way the patients evaluate medical services quality while choosing a clinic. Based on the data of clinics’ websites and in-depth interviews with market participants it can be concluded that there is no quality criteria consensus on the studied market. According to respondents with different background the success of a dental treatment depends on the professionalism of the doctor. And the latter is perceived as the motivation towards professional activity highlighting rendering services to patients rather than skill and experience level. As far as doctors are concerned, the quality of dental services requires integrated approach to treatment contributing to general maintaining of a person’s health. However, patients often come to a clinic when dental problems cannot be longer ignored, and they want to solve them quickly, permanently and in line with modern ideas about how healthy teeth should look like. At the same time no matter how much effort the clinic invests into explanation of its competitive advantages, the customers prefer to trust someone from their reference group who had already experienced the quality of dental services with their body and wallet. Although, the investments clinics make into the qualification of quality in the market are not in vain. The patients use their market discourse cognitive categories both when asking details about the clinic from friends and if doubting the reasonableness of the price paid for the treatment. Thus, the dental market conventional lexicon is defined by parameters that comprise dental services and constitute their quality.

In the article, the different approaches to defining social entrepreneurship are presented as well as the results of  research dedicated to the emerging organisational field of social entrepreneurship in Russia. While this type of  economic activity is institutionally constituted in the US and Western Europe, where there are specific laws and  tax privileges, in Russia it has just only started to develop. Its manner of development in Russia depends not only  on social and economic factors and historic conditions but on the activities of key players in this emerging field.  The expert interviews conducted at the first stage of the research helped the author to distinguish those key players,  including the «Our Future» fund, which served as a single source of financial support for social entrepreneurship  as the research was conducted: 186 applications submitted to competitions for social entrepreneurs held by the fund  over three years are analysed to discover the model of social entrepreneurship promoted by the fund. According to  the results, the stability and financial independency of social projects are referred to the key characteristics of social  projects supported by the fund.

Major changes have happened in the Russian educational system in recent decades. The number of people who continue studying after finishing secondary school has increased significantly, as well as the number of universities and students. The key predictor of educational trajectory is the socioeconomic status (SES) of the students’ families. A lot of research has been devoted to studying family influence on educational trajectory choice. This article considers the main theoretical approaches to studying the relationship between trajectory choice and student SES in the context of higher education expansion. In addition, empirical studies are analyzed, to test the implementation of the described theories in various education systems.

Macro- and micro-theories are identified to explain the reasons for the reproduction of inequality at state and individual levels respectively. Macro-theories describe conditions when inequality persists despite increasing access to education and tell us how to overcome inequalities. These theories are used for comparing students’ cohorts and identifying changes in accessibility to a certain level of education over time. Micro-theories study educational transitions at the individual level and consider the reasons for choosing a trajectory in terms of students’ opportunities, preferences, and limitations. The current review of both empirical and theoretical studies will be useful for future research in this area to make predictions and determine a valid model of the relationship between SES and the choice of educational trajectory in Russia.

Despite the predominant view of fertility as a rationally planned and independent behavior, more and more papers appear that emphasize the need to include measures of social networks and social interactions in fertility research. In this review we discuss several arguments to consider fertility as a socially embedded process. The notion of social embeddedness expresses the shift from the macro and micro levels of analysis to the meso level, disclosing the influence of weak ties (friends, peers and co-workers) and network mechanisms on bearing children and becoming parents. The integration of social influence models into the research on fertility behavior enables students to explain the gap between intentions to have a child and actually becoming a parent in terms of interaction between weak and strong ties. The impact of network mechanisms is tested for different number of births, timing of marriage, and transition to parenthood. Several types of network mechanisms are distinguished: social learning, social contagion, social pressure and social support. Social learning concerns circulation of relevant information and experience exchange with friends, peers and co-workers. Social support involves mobilization of strong and weak ties for material and emotional maintenance in pregnancy, childbearing, childcare, and decision making on new births. Social learning and social support play a decisive role in reducing uncertainty and costs related to childbearing and childcare, especially for countries will low levels of economic sustainability and generalized trust. Social contagion and social pressure are mechanisms that express vertical and horizontal processes of social diffusion related to the spread of social norms and settings on marriage and parenthood. A network approach provides new insight on the role of education, age and religiosity in fertility decisions.
