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.

Title: Estimating Authoritarian Legitimacy During Economic Downturns: Evidence from a Conjoint Experiment in Kazakhstan
Abstract: How sensitive is popular support for the political and foreign policy status quo to a worsening economy in an authoritarian country allied with a belligerent regional hegemon? How severely might declines in economic performance hurt the legitimacy of an authoritarian government? Using a conjoint experiment in Kazakhstan deployed in June 2022, we measure Kazakhstani support for centralised presidential leadership and the alliance with Russia, alongside a range of proposed democratic and foreign policy reforms, under increasingly severe rates of inflation. We find that support for the authoritarian status quo quickly erodes and turns negative as the economy deteriorates while support for Russia weakens but remains marginally positive. Encouragingly, Kazakhstanis prefer strong pro-democratic reforms over the authoritarian status quo even as the economy worsens. These results suggest that committing to undertaking pro-democratic reforms can stymie declines in regime support during economic downturns.
