Continuity and Change in Russian Politics
Editor: Professor Neil Robinson (Department of Politics and Public Administration, University of Limerick)
The centenary of the Russian Revolution of 1917 has been 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 will explore 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.
Contributions are invited from a range of disciplines and perspectives, including, but not restricted to: political studies, international relations, history and sociology.
Articles exploring the following key themes and others of relevance will be considered:
• Policy continuity and change in Russia
• Perspectives on change in Russian politics and society
• Conceptualising change in Russia
• Sources of change in Russian politics
• Continuity and change in Russian foreign relations
• Legacies of the past in Russian politics
• Social and economic adaptation to change in Russia
This is a rolling article collection and as such proposals and submissions will be welcome throughout 2017. However, full submissions received by November 1 will be considered for publication as part of the collection’s formal launch in 2018.
