The Future of Protest in Russia
Despite a ferocious response from the authorities, protest has continued to intensify in Russia. Ordinary Russians appear increasingly willing to take to the streets to venpt their frustrations with the ruling elite, over everything from electoral fraud to ecological problems. We discuss what this means for Russian politics and civil society with one of the country’s most eminent political scientists and social observers.
Ekaterina Schulmann is a Russian political scientist. Described by King’s Russia Institute director Sam Greene as an ‘indefatigable’ observer of Russian politics ‘whom every serious Russia-watcher should follow’, she is a senior lecturer at RANEPA, a university in Moscow. From December 2018 to October 2019, she served as a member of President Vladimir Putin’s Human Rights Council.
