The Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin was founded in 1981. The purpose of the Institute is to offer scholars and scientists the opportunity to concentrate on projects of their own choice for one academic year, free from administrative duties. The Rector and his staff aspire to provide optimal working conditions so that Fellows may devote themselves completely to their research and profit from the unforeseeable stimulation, and even creative provocation, that a diverse community of scholars can offer. In 2015-2016, among the 50 scholars and researchers will carry out work on their project "Guns and Regulations: the Social History of Russian Law, 1800-1937" Associate professor of History T.Y. Borisova business segment. The gun problem is very much in focus today. The most recent legislative initiative in the Russian Parliament to legalize the carrying of firearms was in October 2014 and enjoyed considerable support from a number of very active regional and all-Russian NGOs promoting the right of the Russian people to bear firearms for self-defense. The claims of Russian gun enthusiasts are often based on "historical arguments". However, the real history of the private possession of firearms remains unwritten.Tatiana Borisova will consider the private possession of firearms in Russia in 1800 2000 from three main perspectives: formal rules, procedure, and ideology. She will collect and analyze regulative materials on bans on handguns, permissions to own firearms granted to particular social groups, hunting legislation, sentence exacerbation for the use of weapons, and legislation on self-defence. The research questions are: - What was the theoretical basis for adopting a rather permissive, rather than restrictive approach to the regulation of the private possession of firearms? - What legal, political, and social concepts shaped private firearms regulations and conditioned their enforcement?
