Smart Moscow: Digital Technologies and Network Practices in City Management
Journalism
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
The present work is devoted to exploring Moscow experience as a smart city and, in particular, to study management practices in the city. The aim of the work is to understand if practices of city management in Moscow involve the participation of citizens in making generally valid decisions

The research methods are limited to expert interviews, analysis of documents and the app "Active citizen".

Our work is structurally divided into four chapters. In the first, we explore modern approaches to the study of the communicative environment of the city, in the second we consider the basic approaches to the analysis of a smart city, in the third we analyze the concepts of power applied to the study of a modern city. The fourth chapter of this work presents an empirical study based on an expert interview, an analysis of documents and the "Active citizen" app. In this part, we determine which of the smart city models is the most relevant to the Moscow experience, and explore what network and digital practices are involved in city management.

As a result of our research, we argue that Moscow corresponds to the concept of a smart city as a space of digital technologies, in which the participation of citizens and their opinion are not so important.
