This book has analysed a number of different aspects of Russia today through the prism of security. Using the securitisation approach developed in the sphere of international relations, it has considered contemporary Russian domestic politics in relation to Chechen separatism, the media, terrorism, religion, political parties, nationalism, migration, and the economy. Although there are of course connections between these policy areas — some more so than others — each chapter can be read on its own as an overview of policy development in its designated field, with an emphasis on the role that security concerns have played in the creation and implementation of policy. This concluding chapter brings together these mezo-level analyses into a macro-level assessment of contemporary Russia. In essence, it asks how accurate it is to portray Russia under Vladimir Putin as a country where policy-making is dominated by security.
