First, we demonstrate that structural explanations based on socio-economic factors are insufficient to account for authoritarian regression in two of collapsology’s “crucial cases” – inter-war Germany and post-communist Russia. Instead, (a) a dearth of pro-democratic actors on the elite, intermediary as well as population levels, and (b) a misconstrued form of government allowing the head of state to rule without parliament in combination with the election of a restorationist president, are identified as a configuration constituting a sufficient cause for a country to experience authoritarian regression. Second, we speculate about when an electoral autocracy gets in danger to transform into a fascist ideocracy. Like in Weimar Germany, we can find in today’s Russia fascist actors and widespread nationalism among the population. In current Russia, in distinction to inter-war Germany, however, the party system is manipulated and the third sector underdeveloped. The continuing political presence of a strongly authoritarian, yet non-fascist “national leader” Vladimir Putin creates hindrances for the country to become a liberal democracy, but makes it also improbable that the Russian regime will transgress into fascism.

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.

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”.

Russian political, analytical and scientific publications depict a future of the country mainly in a framework of the “Great Power paradigm”. This paradigm uses such an alternatives as Great Power versus Catastrophe (at times, Global), Great Power versus failed state, Great Power versus something foggy and dim (just as that-what-must-not-be-named), or fixes solely on one position – Great/leading power. The trouble is that it carries out a discussion on Russian future into a realm of irreality. The analysis of Russian resource capabilities shows that over the next decade, the country is likely to lose its Great power status. So the real dilemma of Russian political future is much more prosy and much more tragic than “Great Power versus Global Catastrophe”, it is an option between (at best) a regional power comfortable enough for its citizens and existing in its current borders and (at worst) a degradation and disintegration of the country. Meanwhile it is not so easy to achieve or even to come close to the best position. For this the country has to solve a lot of complicated tasks, including passing through the deep and painful consciousness revolution – that is to reject a mythology of its own greatness and elaborate a rational, critical view at its capabilities. Despite a gravity of choice between “a host of bitter truths” of reality and “an uplifting us illusion” of political mythology, the preference for “bitter truths” seems to be the only way to prevent the worst future scenario.

We address the problem of public sector effi ciency in Russian regions by applying Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). The main quantitative outcome of the study is the set of “social effi ciency” estimations based upon DEA scores. The latter are calculated for the following public sector areas: healthcare, security, education, housing and communal services, employment and poverty reduction. The returns to scale are supposed to be variable, all inputs are monetary (budget expenditures), product possibility frontier is the single one for the whole time period evaluated (2008 – 2011). We consider both inputoriented and output-oriented effi ciency scores to be equally important. Special attention is paid to the problem of effi ciency scores’ validity. The severity of this problem originates in grand-scale heterogeneity and diversity of Russian regions. To reduce the impact of exogenous factors (such as huge variety in transport infrastructure and climate conditions) on effi ciency scores, we examine a number of techniques. They are regression analysis, Metafrontier and multistage DEA. The best correction result, however, is achieved by relatively simple approach: division of monetary inputs by Budget Expenditure Indexes (BEI). BEI values are provided by Russian Ministry of Finance; the index is especially designed to take into account territorial differences. The separate task is to analyze the effi ciency dynamics of Russian regions. Effi ciency scores for different years from 2008 to 2011 are comparable due to the single product possibility frontier for the whole time-series-cross-section data set. That makes possible to take the fi rst differences and calculate weighted sums (for input-effi ciency and output effi ciency scores separately). The alternative methodology developed by the author is to consider the dynamics of each region as a trajectory in a state space with two dimensions: input effi ciency and output effi ciency rates. We propose the adopted formal tools to present this evaluation as a scalar value.

The working paper deals with the issue of citizens’ participation in home anti-corruption policy implementation. The necessary condition for this is accountability of public officials. The author scrutinizes a mechanism of political control based on the rotation of the higher public officials through competition of political parties in free and fair elections. Besides, methods and stages of civil control are discussed. The paper demonstrates that civil control is stipulated by citizens’ activity and specifies ways of using it in anti-corruption policy.
