The overarching goal of the department is systematic development of the field of global, comparative, and transnational history as a potent tool of overcoming the limitations of national history canon, fostering interdisciplinary dialogue in the field of social sciences and humanities, and brining new public relevance to historical knowledge. The department mission includes the development of new type of historical undergraduate and graduate education in Russia and pioneering new research fields in Russian historiography in dialogue with the global historical profession.

If we view the history of modern Europe from the point of view of the history of democracy and parliamentarism, a major turning point was experienced during and after the First World War. The war, revolutions in Russia and Germany, suffrage reforms in a number of countries and constitutional changes elsewhere affected meanings assigned to ‘democracy’ and ‘parliamentarism’ in a variety of national and ideological contexts. Unlike previous revolutionary eras, ‘democracy’ was in widespread use: almost any political group wished to view themselves as democrats in 1917 – 19, though the understandings of democracy remained inherently diverse and tended to get more so in the ideological heat of constitutional debate.This paper aims at reconstructing and analysing in comparative contexts the reception and indirect impact of the two Russian Revolutions of 1917 on these debates. The paper is based on the conceptual analysis of the most important plenary constitutional debates from four European countries experiencing different versions of democratisation: Britain, Germany, Sweden and Finland.
