Левиафан поневоле: захват государства как следствие режимных деформаций

The presented article continues the series of studies of state characteristics, which are high in topicality at the moment. The attention is paid to the problem of developing the complex approach for examination of the “state capture” phenomenon, based on conventional theories. Author carries out the critical analysis of approaches, reveals the extent of usage of the term and as a result “clarifi es” it. It allows making a revised conceptualization of the “state capture” phenomenon with distinguishing certain stages of the process and minimizing the normative aspect of the theory. The fi nal part of study presents operationalization of the examined phenomenon and its correlation with the access to power and quality of institutions.
