A Comparative Analysis of the Evolution of Urban Self-Government in the Post-Soviet States
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
This study is devoted to a comparative analysis of the co-evolution of urban governance and national regimes in the post-Soviet states (Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova). As a result of the research, it was concluded that the dynamics of electoral competitiveness and protest voting in local political regimes is not synchronous with the dynamics of similar indicators in the national political regimes; at local elections electoral indicators can significantly differ from those in national elections in the same time period. It was also concluded that the formation of local regimes with specific characteristics depends to a large extent on the degree of influence and autonomy of local elites. In addition, three possible scenarios of the violation of co-evolution were identified through the formation of local regimes based on the behavior of local elites in terms of historical institutionalism.
