On October 15, a scientific seminar of the Department of Political Science and International Relations was held On October 15, the first scientific seminar of the Department of Political Science and International Relations took place in the current academic year. The speaker was Daniil Tiniakov, who is PhD student of the department. He presented the intermediate results of his thesis. In his presentation which called “Can Citizens Influence Political Governance in a Hybrid Mode? The Case of Three Russian Reforms ”, the speaker put forward the idea that institutions in hybrid regimes can be not only a means of political survival for authoritarian elites, but also channels of influence on reforms by citizens. Based on data from three Russian reforms and using method of the regression analysis, Daniil Tiniakov presented empirical arguments in support of his assumption. The main scientific inference is that two factors affect the degree of citizens' involvement in policy. First, it is the type of reform and the degree of its relevance for the population. Secondly, it is the nature of the institutional environment in each specific region. The latter factor is especially important, since the opportunities of citizens to influence political reforms depends on the quality of institutions.
