Working paper

Религиозность и политическое участие: роль политики в российских религиозных общинах

Кулькова А. Ю.
The paper investigates the interaction between religiosity and political participation in modern Russia in order to identify which of the religious predictors explain political participation better – religious affi liation or the degree of religiosity. Statistical analysis results are then interpreted using the data from in-depth interviews with representatives of Russian Orthodox Christian and Muslim religious communities. Behavioral measures of religiosity are positively and robustly connected to political participation while differences between confessions are instable and appear in 2012 only. Political issues are discussed in Russian religious communities and political participation is encouraged.
