Continuity and change in Russian politics
Editor: Professor Neil Robinson (Department of Politics and Public Administration, University of Limerick, Republic of Ireland)
Scope: The centenary of the Russian Revolution of 1917 was a cause for reflection. Political, social and economic change in Russia have reshaped Russia over the last century, but at the same time, as the return to autocratic rule under Vladimir Putin shows, there are powerful continuities in Russia that need to be accounted for.
This article collection explores how continuity and change have shaped Russian politics over the last century and their legacies today, and how different social science disciplines, and interdisciplinary work have taken account of continuities and change to explain the role of different forces and institutions in the development of Russia.
