‘Traditional Values’ and the Law in Putin’s Russia
Vladimir Putin came to power promising a ‘dictatorship of the law’. Since 2012 he has consciously built a more socially conservative regime, emphasising opposition to ‘non-traditional sexual relations’ and promoting ‘traditional values’. How has Russia’s ‘conservative turn’ interacted with the Kremlin’s formal legal and constitutional obligations?
