Dynamics of Regional “Political Machines” as a Consequence of Changes in the Order of Formation of Heads of Federal

Student: Elena Polozova

Supervisor: Ivan Grigoriev

Faculty: Saint-Petersburg School of Social Sciences and Area Studies

Educational Programme: Political Science (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2016

Final qualifying work aims to study the performance of the regional "political machines" in Russia in the 2000s. Changing the policy of the federal center to regional authorities has significantly changed the position of the latter. The reform of the executive power in the regions, which abolished direct elections of governors, was the key event. Appointees should have to justify the confidence of the center and to ensure the loyalty of the "party of power". Work will focus on the study of the causes contributing to "political survival" of regional leaders in terms of appointments system and identification of factors that have a great influence on the success of the governors in the management of the "political machine".
