At the IV-th Congress of the Russian Political Science Association, J. Higgley spoke about the direct linkage between the phenomenon of elites and democracy. In his opinion democracy never emerged without preliminary or associate shaping of consensually united elite, and no democracy survived after the decay of such elite. On the basis of his perennial studies of the political elites of Norway, Australia, Latin America and Eastern Europe, John Higgley forecasts the “recalibration” of the mentality and actions of the consensually united elites under the new conditions (but not their decay).
