Gender Aspects of Social Policy in Russia: Evidence from Women's Crisis Centers in Perm and Ekaterinburg
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2017
The main goal of the research is: to identify gender aspects of Russia's social policy by the example of the activity of crisis centers in the city of Perm and Yekaterinburg, that is, to reveal and analyze how the government implements social policy through specific crisis centers.

The main research methods are qualitative methods, namely semi-standardized focused interview and analysis of organization documents. In connection with the methods used, this study has the following limitations: the ability to explore crisis centers only in nearby regions. Within the framework of the study, two crisis centers will be analyzed: the Women's Crisis Center in Perm and the Ekaterina crisis center in Yekaterinburg. To analyze the social policy of the state, it is important to analyze the activities of individual social service organizations in the regions, since it is important to study the specifics of the activity of social services at the regional level in order to analyze and understand the gender aspects of the social policy of the federal state.

To achieve the research objectives, it is necessary to fulfill the following tasks: To conduct semi-structured focused interviews with employees and management of crisis centers in the city of Perm and Yekaterinburg.

Considering the activity of crisis centers in the context of the global movement for the protection of women's rights, it can be concluded that the consolidation of the non-radical semi-authoritarian regime limited the political opportunity for this feminist project in Russia. By the end of the first term of the presidency, V.V. Putin's process of forming crisis centers, as a social phenomenon, was etatized and domesticated. Crisis centers no longer resemble a large social movement, and the characteristics of a feminist human rights movement have been lost.
