Topics
  • Discourse of power or power of discourse?
  • Corruption is a global phenomenon, which influences almost all aspects of public life. The negative impact of corruption makes it impossible neither to ignore nor to postpone implementation of anticorruption policy. Besides, corruption changes rapidly and requires constant revision of effective practices.

Research problems

Discursive manifestations of power, argumentative approach to critical discourse analysis, opposing discourses in the public sphere

Topics
Actors of Political Changes: Assessing Policy Impact
The role of public opinion in the social policy design and implementation. Actors of current social policy and welfare state. The problems of inequality in different aspects of social life. Development and or vs. equality. 


Research problems

Based on the 2-year research projects “Discrete mathematical models for political analysis of democratic institutions and human rights”, we put forward following theses.
First, democratic development is a multidimensional (nonlinear) process that is affected (influenced) by diverse number of factors and actors, which could be called drivers. Therefore democratic development is not “a movement on the vector”, but a collection of political changes that in sum could be seen as “a movement on the nonlinear trajectory”.
Second, it is important to distinguish three types of democratic development: democratization of authoritarian states (establishment of the institutions of “polyarchy”), democracy changes in “defected democracies” (overcoming the defects of “polyarchy”) and democratic development of “embedded democracies” (increasing “quality of democracy”).
Third, democratization of authoritarian states is mostly driven by factors (e.g., economy crisis, development of civil society and protest activity, crisis of elites’ legitimacy); democracy changes in “defected democracies” and democratic development of “embedded democracies” are mostly driven by actors (e.g. international organizations, civil organizations, elites).
Following the logic of political changes (regime change is not necessarily a democratic development) a new focus of deepening the research has to be put on Actors as the Drivers of political changes. Protest Public and other actors became an important actor of political change both in authoritarian and democratic states (“Occupy movement” in USA and Europe, “Arab spring”, protests in Russia, Brazil and Turkey). But few researches try to understand: How can protest public and other actors impact on the political change? How and when does actor impact on the democratic development? When does actor become a driver of political regime changes or democratic development? What are the mechanisms of such “driving”?
