Legal Regulation for Movement of Citizens' Registration in the UK, Russia and Ukraine: a Comparative Analysis
This paper examines the issue of accounting and controlling the movement of citizens within the country by means of comparing three jurisdictions: the UK, Russia and Ukraine. The scientific novelty of the work consists in a comparative legal analysis of the Russian passport and registration institute with one strongly dissimilar jurisdiction (UK), and one sister (Ukraine). In particular, this is the first study of the system of accounting and controlling for the movement of British citizens in Russian. The system of registration of citizens (registration) in three different countries is studied on the example of three basic public services: public education, public medicine and elections. Great Britain is analyzed and compared with Russia as a country that does not have a passport and registration system in principle. Russia and Ukraine are studied and compared as countries with the same legal past and at the same time certain differences in legal regulation, which are deepening since 2014. Recommendations are made to improve the system of registration of citizens in Russia. A significant part of the work is the author's original research due to the lack of publicly available research on this topic regarding the UK and Ukraine in Russian, English and Ukrainian languages. The work may be of interest to all who are interested in the problems of constitutional law, administrative law and public administration.
