Российский консерватизм: вызовы и ответы

The text is addressing three questions/challenges: Is it true that time for conservatism in Russia has come? And if it is, then – why? What is the algorithm of Russian historical path that makes Russian Conservatism so paradoxical? How could Russian Conservatism become an ideological base for the national development strategy? To properly meet these challenges Conservatism has to revise traditional scheme of modernizing reforms in Russia and try to implement social innovations generated within national socio-cultural context rather than imported from abroad. This approach (which could properly be called “ The Conservative Modernization”) provides a new framework for ‘organic’ relationships between population and statehood which opens positive prospects for completion of troublesome nation-building in post-Soviet Russia. Presumably the institutional driver of this conservative ideological shift could become “All-Russian People’s Front”.
