The detailed theses of the report held at the scientific-practical seminar “Politeia”, March 25, 2010
The report presented at the scientific-practical seminar “Politeia”, March 25, 2010, analyzes the institutional and political changes in Russia in the recent years. A.Zudin argues that the core of these changes is the transformation from the consolidation process towards the controlled differentiation of the political regime. Having pointed out the alteration in the scenario of the country’s political development, Zudin hypothesizes that in the short-term prospect the implementation of this scenario will hinge upon the solution of three most important problems i.e. a status of the socially active minority, a new model of the party system, and the future of the tandem between V.Putin and D.Medvedev. According to his conclusions, if the planned political construction shows no serious dysfunctions, the hybrid model of government laid out in the Constitution of 1993 might turn into reality.
