Understanding Elections in Russia

Description: Recent elections in Russia have been on the one hand predictable, because the regime in power is anxious and able to control outcomes, and also unpredictable, because ordinary citizens are beginning to make public their dissatisfaction with the way their political system is developing. Students from POLS 253, Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics, will analyze the March 2012 presidential election in Russia, focusing on the parties that fielded candidates, the mechanisms used to control outcomes, and the role of popular opposition. Moderated by Dr. Ellen Carnaghan, Chair and Professor, Department of Political Science.
