Working paper
Rosenberg D. Политическая теория и политический анализ. WP14. Высшая школа экономики, 2014. No. 01.
This study explores association between political regime, good governance and country social  performance measured as Infant Mortality Rate (IMR). It is widely argued that democratic leaders  possess more incentives to provide public goods, say, in order to meet median voter’s demands, than  their authoritarian counterparts, which, inter alia, leads to superior health related capabilities in democracies. Maintaining an assumption that in the modern world public health delivery process may  be of greater importance for certain health outcomes than macroeconomic and political factors, say,  economic growth, and capitalizing on the observation that an increasing number of nondemocratic  regimes perform well on governance and health indicators, whereas many democracies, especially  nascent, fare poorly, I argue that it is good governance that matters more for state performance in the  healthcare sector than democracy vs. autocracy dichotomy. Utilizing both cross-section and TSCS  data analysis, I show that good governance exerts systematic influence upon IMR, whereas political  regime characteristics lose their statistical significance once controlled for governance.

A common situation that state efficiency research has to deal with is total lack of information about actual efficiency parameters: the only data available for analysis is the amount of inputs (in most cases, monetary, corresponding to budget expenditure) and the amount of outputs (in most cases, quantifiable public goods). A non-parametric method such as DEA is well-suited for estimating DMU efficiency in such cases, although different input and output specifications might yield contradictory estimates. In this paper we provide an example of how a dynamic model of the state redistribution based on common assumptions about production technology allows to benchmark efficiency estimates. The model becomes a systematic generator of inputs and outputs to be estimated via DEA; model (pre-set) parameters are to be compared to DEA efficiency scores. We also propose a way to combine both “static” and “dynamic” approaches to measuring public sector efficiency by using aggregated DEA inputs.

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.

The presented working paper is based on the results of the interdisciplinary project aimed at working out the sustainable skills of parallel analysis of terms and appearances of modern politics; systematic and critical reference of the notion system and political science subjects. The project implied studying the key (in the essential sense) cores of the political science notion system in the Russian and English languages and covered the terms and concepts connected with the following fields of politics: state, government and governance, accountability. On the base of bilingual materials (originals and their translations), which were to be examined by our research academic group members, the following objectives have been achieved: • Primary lexicographical description of the terminology touching the highlighted subject fields; • Political analysis of their notion system; • Comparative analysis of the results of the previous two stages. Achieving these goals allowed us to: • Create systematical and parallel bilingual glossaries; • Develop integrated bilingual thesauri for the examined subject fields. The Project gave its members the chance to: • develop and master their linguistic skills in both languages, • deepen the knowledge of political terminology (also in both languages), • improve the skills of linguistic analysis by comparing linguistic units functioning in the Russian and English languages, that require adequate interpreting and (re)defining, depending on their contextual actualization. It was revealed that the associative links of the notion of accountability comprise coresemantic fields “holding people accountable”, “responsibility”, “liability” and others. The accountability concept also covers such outcome notions as “the accountability holder” and “the accountability holdee” meaning government officials, government bureaucracies, managers, donors and a number of other stakeholders each of whom may be investigatedas an independent push-notion.

Medvedev S. A. Политическая теория и политический анализ. WP14. Высшая школа экономики, 2007. No. 02.
The paper explores the discursive foundations of the current crisis in EU-Russia relations. The problem lies in contrasting readings of sovereignty in Brussels and in Moscow. The Kremlin is bent on Westphalian readings of stateness, promoting visions of a “sovereign democracy”, and a strategy of bureaucratic centralization. Meanwhile, the EU pursues a strategy of Europeanization, seeking to transform nations and spaces along its perimeter to its own image and liking. In deconstructing “Europeanization”, the paper challenges conventional readings of the EU as a postmodern actor, and argues that the EU’s external policy has embarked upon an essentially modern strategy of “bureaucratic imperialism”, rooted in traditional readings of Westernness as goodness. The collision of two modernist projects, Moscow’s bureaucratic centralization and Brussels’ “bureaucratic imperialism,” is a key structural impediment in EU-Russia relations.

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.

During the uprisings in 2011 so called Islamist movements and parties entered the political scene  in Egypt tending to fi ll the vacuum emerged after Hosny Mubarak’s resignation and National Democratic  Party’s dissolution. This new reality made some observers to conclude, that Egypt has been witnessing  the formation of a strong and united Islamist camp with a potential to take power to their hands.  However, this assumption is unlikely to refl ect the true events. The analyses we have conducted shows,  that there has been a rivalry between key actors inside this Islamist camp – the Muslims Brotherhood  and Salafi movements. Besides, this article concerns one more Islamic movement, which is often  excluded from investigations on contemporary Islamists parties in Egypt – namely, the most active  group of Sufi s. We argue, that political role of Sufi s is unreasonably ignored and thus should be further  explored.
