Discourses Concerning Renovation Program: Comparative Study
Advertising and Public Relations
For the last decade, urban movements in Moscow have begun to appear, evolve and expand more often: the conflict over Khimki Forest, the fight for Taganskaya Telephone Station, “Partizaning” and “Sovarch” projects and so on. But more and more city issues and their discussions lead to conflicts between authorities and citizens. In the following research the author analyzed the major conflict over recent years — the renovation program conflict. This paper focuses on the discoursive side of the conflict. Within the course of the study the author identified the peculiarities of authorities’ and renovation program opponents’ discourses, which in turn enabled to identify key aspects of the conflict and of the formation of the relationship between the authorities and society. The further research on this theme requires more deep study and mixed-method approach.
