The Department was created on the basis of the Department of Politics, which was established in 2005. The main purpose of the department is to provide today’s students with professional training in the fields of political analysis and sociopolitical engineering, as well as in creating a special creative atmosphere that allows for the formation and development of a society of political experts who are capable of not only carrying out professional research, but also proposing and implementing solutions to relevant Russian and international problems.

Dear colleagues, We are pleased to invite you to the Department of Political Science and International Relations Research Seminar, which will be held on Friday, November 13, 2020 at 18:30 (MSK) . Speaker: Dr. Jan Matti Dollbaum, (Post-Doctoral researcher, Research Centre for East European Studies at the University of Bremen, Germany).Title: Political protest in the Russian regions since 2011Today, independent media frequently report about protest in the Russian provinces, be it in Astrakhan, Yekaterinburg, or Bashkortostan. Some of these are clearly political in nature, as the large protest wave in Khabarovsk amply demonstrates. This course investigates the recent history of regional political protest, beginning with the Bolotnaya or “For Fair Elections” protests and tracing their local developments in four selected regions – Perm, Yekaterinburg, Saratov and Rostov. In a second step, we examine the consequences of these protests for local opposition politics in comparative perspective based on quantitative data from the Central Electoral Commission. Finally, the session traces the connections between the Bolotnaya protests and Aleksey Navalny’s presidential campaign of 2017/18. Throughout the session, we will reflect on the structural factors and institutional underpinnings of variation in protest levels and forms across the regions, providing a solid ground to better understand current regional protest trends.
Working languages are Russian / English.
Seminar will be online via Zoom.
