Dear colleagues,We are pleased to invite you to the Department of Political Science and International Relations Research Seminar, which will be held on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 18:30 (MSK).Speaker: Daniil Tinykov (PhD Student, Higher School of Economics, Saint Petersburg).Title: Can the citizens affect the policy process in a hybrid regime? Evidence from three Russian reformsTraditionally, the political institutions of a hybrid regime are perceived as tools of survival for authoritarian elites. The reported study looks at them from a different angle and demonstrates under which circumstances such quasi-democractic institutions can affect policy process in a hybrid regime. It analyzes the regional dimension of three of Russian reforms of late 2010s: administrative, pensions and waste-management. The results of the quantitative analysis of data from Russian subnational units from 2015 to 2019 show which of the features of regional political regimes foster the significance of democracy-like institutions as a factor of the reform dynamics. The results generally support the expectations that quasi-democractic institutions could have a significant effect on the policy process conditional on a number of characteristics of a region.Working languages are English / Russian.Seminar will be online via ZoomThe link to join Zoom:https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81178148481?pwd=YVE0WVpmVXRHMWgvRTljM3ZZaWdjUT09Meeting ID: 811 7814 8481Password: 453969If you have questions please contact Stanislav Shkel (firstname.lastname@example.org )
