Cultural patterns of non-civil society in Russia

February 12, 2021 | 18.30 

ZOOM

 

The speaker is going to present a research project (the research was carried out jointly with Anna Naklyutskaya), which examines the political culture of “non-civil society” in Russia. The concept of “non-civil society” is controversial in the literature devoted to the study of the socio-political transformation of post-authoritarian (primarily post-communist) societies. This concept describes a complex segment of public activity, the characteristics of which go beyond the conceptualization that has developed in the theories of democratic transition. We use the Q-methodology technique to analyze data from the civilian sphere of St. Petersburg to understand the multiplicity of cultural patterns in the illiberal segment of Russian civil society. The findings of the study are related to the analysis (interpretation) of value factors (clusters) identified as a result of the factorization of structured interviews with activists of “illiberal” groups (N = 15, 2020). The conducted research confirmed the presence of clearly identifiable illiberal cultural patterns in the studied segment. But the more important results are, first, the description of the diversity of patterns of “illiberal” identity, and, second, the discovery of cultural patterns that can be characterized as part of the overall context of liberal identity. The latter conclusion is the most significant finding of our research project, confirming both the empirical and conceptual conventions of the division between “civil” and “non-civil” society in real social contexts.
