CONTEMPORARY DEVELOPMENTS IN RUSSIA’S FEDERAL AND LOCAL ELECTIONS: ON THE WAY TO A COHESIVE PARTY SYSTEM?
Sukhova Marina. Political Science. PS. Высшая школа экономики, 2018
This research analyzes the differences between municipal elections in large and medium-sized Russian cities (more than 100,000 citizens) and federal elections to representative bodies for the period from 2003 to 2018. The empirical evidence includes 210 municipal electoral campaigns in 119 cities and 4 federal legislative campaigns for comparison. We examine these differences using the notion of the party system nationalization, which is measured by comparing turnout and voting for political parties at different territorial levels in the same cities, and by party system inflation (with the use of the effective number of parties – an index that allows a comparison of election competitiveness at different administrative levels). Most of the cases are midterm municipal elections held separately between the federal campaigns. However, we draw special attention to the differences when federal and municipal campaigns overlap. The results showed some progress in the process of the nationalization of the Russian party system which is indicated by the rapprochement of the degree of competitiveness in the federal and municipal elections and, later, by the likeliness of electoral preferences at different territorial levels.

Political Internet meme is an underresearched contemporary phenomenon situated at the interface of digital media and political communication. Regarded as a unit of online transmission of cultural information, such a meme can be considered, on the on hand, as a manifestation of post-folklore, and on the other hand, as a mechanism of political participation and construction of social media users’ collective identity. The article presents the results of investigation into Internet memes generated by protest discourse in Runet (Russian Internet). Examination of a vast amount of Internet content allows drawing conclusions as to the thematic emphases of protest actions represented in Runet’s memosphere and to the specifics of the image of Russian protest as reflected in memes.

The paper applies the communicative theory of democracy to the protest surge between December 2011 and May 2012 in Moscow. The author investigates whether the protests indicate that there is a demand for a new type of political communication and civic action in the contemporary Russia. Several features characterize society based on political dialogue. They are the new spaces of politics, policymaking under radical uncertainty, importance of difference for understanding politics, acting upon interdependence, new dynamic of trust and identity. In the paper, I look both at the new forms of political activism in Russia (i.e., the Occupy camp in Moscow), and at the more traditional forms of street protest, which attracted extremely large number of people during the period studied. The analysis of the discourse and behavior of participants shows that there is little demand for the productive political dialogue among them.
