Federalism and Democratisation in Russia

Cameron Ross


Building on earlier work, this text combines theoretical perspectives with empirical work, to provide a comparative analysis of the electoral systems, party systems and governmental systems in the ethnic republics and regions of Russia. It also assesses the impact of these different institutional arrangements on democratization and federalism, moving the focus of research from the national level to the vitally important processes of institution building and democratization at the local level and to the study of federalism in Russia.

Keywords: federalism, institution building, comparative analysis, electoral systems, party systems, governmental systems, ethnic republics, Russia, institutional arrangements, democratisation
