This book, issued by the Paris United Research Department of Comparative Law and the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law on the one side and by the Government of the Russian Federation on the other side is the first French-language publication providing access to recent developments in the Russian administrative law. One is confronted with French law and other human rights developments in Europe, on topics selected by mutual agreement by the authors from the issues on the agenda of reforms in Russia. Administrative procedures and control are key legal issues. How they are set dependent on the level of protection of rights and freedoms, the efficiency of public administration, economic development and stability of the state in general. Transformations of the Russian administrative law are put into the context of European administrative rights. French readers will see how the Russian context influences how to address them; Russian edition has brought to the attention of the Russian reader the general principles of French administrative procedure, the system of implicit decisions, the role of individuals in the completion of certain public tasks.

The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
The results of cross-cultural research of implicit theories of innovativeness among students and teachers, representatives of three ethnocultural groups: Russians, the people of the North Caucasus (Chechens and Ingushs) and Tuvinians (N=804) are presented. Intergroup differences in implicit theories of innovativeness are revealed: the ‘individual’ theories of innovativeness prevail among Russians and among the students, the ‘social’ theories of innovativeness are more expressed among respondents from the North Caucasus, Tuva and among the teachers. Using the structural equations modeling the universal model of values impact on implicit theories of innovativeness and attitudes towards innovations is constructed. Values of the Openness to changes and individual theories of innovativeness promote the positive relation to innovations. Results of research have shown that implicit theories of innovativeness differ in different cultures, and values make different impact on the attitudes towards innovations and innovative experience in different cultures.
