When Putin Retires...


Problems of Civil Society

Soviet era organisations and networks served to control people, atomise society, and discourage participation in politics and social life
Not enough clarity regarding the role of community organisations in societal development
Public participation oscillates between protest forms (protest voting, actions of protest) and political apathy (low turnout at elections)
Limited character of feedback that community organisations have with various social groups
No clear understanding of the various forms of interaction between community organisations and government agencies
The structure of public interests (and even the countrys social structure) have not fully gelled
Community organisations may have difficulty in situating themselves on interest-based dimensions
