Effectiveness of legislative measures to counter corruption

A survey of 1611 adults aged 18 and above residing in 120 settlements of 48 subjects of the Russian Federation took place on 13-16 September 2014. The Resource Center for Sociological and Internet Research of the St.Petersburg State University conducted the survey at the place of respondents’ residence and using a sample representative of adult population of the Russian Federation. The sampling error is ±2.5%.
Russians believe corruption is one of the most significant and urgent problems. However, the public opinion does not view corruption as the most significant problem. According to the survey results, only one out of four Russians thinks that combating corruption should become a priority, the most important goal for the Russian authorities. Agreeing with the idea that combating corruption is an important task, more Russians (48.6%) said corruption is one of equally important tasks the Russian authorities should focus on in the first place.

Information Wars and Online Activism During the 2013/2014 Crisis in Ukraine: Examining the Social Structures of Pro- and Anti-Maidan Groups

Policy & Internet                                                                                                     

Volume 7, Issue 2, pages 121–158, June 2015

Information Wars and Online Activism During the 2013/2014 Crisis in Ukraine: Examining the Social Structures of Pro- and Anti-Maidan Groups

The paper was awarded the “Best Paper” Prize at the biennial Internet, Politics, and Policy conference (IPP2014) (September 25-26, 2014) . The conference was organized by the Oxford Internet Institute (University of Oxford)

This article examines how online groups are formed and sustained during crisis periods, especially when political polarization in society is at its highest level. We focus on the use of Vkontakte (VK), a popular social networking site in Ukraine, to understand how it was used by Pro- and Anti-Maidan groups during the 2013/2014 crisis in Ukraine. In particular, we ask whether and to what extent the ideology (or other factors) of a particular group shapes its network structure. We find some support that online social networks are likely to represent local and potentially preexisting social networks, likely due to the dominance of reciprocal (and often close) relationships on VK and opportunities for group members to meet face-to-face during offline protests. We also identify a number of group-level indicators, such as degree centralization, modularity index and average engagement level, that could help to classify groups based on their network properties. Community researchers can start applying these group-level indicators to online communities outside VK; they can also learn from this article how to identify networks of spam and marketing accounts.

Migrants’ networks as a social resource

Ilyin V.I.


Sociology. Natural Sciences. Society. Collection of scientific articles and papers of the All-Russian science conference: “Sociology and natural sciences: interdisciplinary approaches to the study of social reality”. Moscow, 12-13 December 2014. Edited by Pokrovsky N.E., Doctor of Science in sociology, professor. M: “Community of professional sociologists” ROO, “Variant” Ltd, 2014, pp.: 142-146.


Migrants’ networks as a social resource
This article examines the phenomenon of networks as areas of social capital accumulation. When moving to large cities, migrants from small settlements tend to maintain their social networks with their countrymen. These networks exist in two forms. First, new city residents tend to maintain personal connections (particularly in the very beginning). Second, their core friends in the internet networks are their countrymen from the same settlement. This hypothesis was tested by analysing VKontakte social networks performed by the Resource Center for Sociological and Internet Research of the St.Petersburg State University.
