Description:
The course "New authoritarian systems: Russia and post-Soviet space" icovers politics, political systems and societies of all countries that emerged on the territory of the former USSR, except the three Baltic republics. The aim of the course is to teach students of undergraduate programme in political science about contemporary forms of autocratic systems that are direct product of historical heritage and political processes taking place in the new independent states after the collapse of the USSR. The transition from communism has not resulted in the emergence of new democratic systems but in the emergence of pseudodemocracy or usually some new form of autocratic systems that are resistant to democratization process. Through lectures and seminars it will be explained to students the historical legacy that preceded the establishment of the new independent states, the mode and the contextual framework in which began the transition from communism, the selection of new political institutions, political processes and political culture in these countries. Empirical data that will be used in classes will be explained and analyzed through theoretical concepts of democratic transition, autocratic systems and political subsystems: system of government, electoral system and party system.
