Politics and Governance
In this paper, we study the dynamics of the change in polycentricity in subnational regimes in Russia from 2000 to the present. The work consists of 3 chapters. The first chapter deals with the concept of stability of the political regime and provides an overview of the main factors of the polycentricity of the subnational regime: continious existing of opposition parties and the level of development of the mass media. Through the prism of these factors, the second chapter examines the dynamics of the development of subnational regimes in Russia: in the 1990s and early 2000s. The third chapter tests the hypotheses of the study and presents the results, including an analysis of the contradictions that have arisen during the analysis of the data.
