Civil Society Enchanted: The Rise and Fall of Civic Activism in Russia
In December 2011 – May 2012 the “For Fair Elections” movement shook the country returning politics back to the streets. The unprecedented number of participants, frequency and novelty of actions showed the new face of Russian civil society: creative, organized, and demanding changes. After inauguration of Vladimir Putin for his third term things went awry with multiple divides emerged within different civil society groups on the issues of religious rights (Pussy Riot case), direction of further development of the country, and eventually on Ukraine conflict and Crimea affairs. In this lecture we will focus on the dynamics of civil society – state interactions in Russia, new legislation on political and civic rights (including the “foreign agents law”) and the role of post-Crimean consensus in “enchanting” Russian civil society. We illustrate our arguments with the new database on civic activism across Russian regions that has been recently assembled at the Center for Comparative History and Politics Studies in Perm.
