Ekaterina Schulmann: The State of Mind. Transformations of public opinion in Russia 2018-2023. Freiburger Horizonte, 4. Mai 2023
- hochgeladen 11. Mai 2023
Russian politics has shifted to more aggression, but what do Russian people think? Using a range of sociological data collected by official and independent polling agencies as well as circumstantial evidence and indirect markers of behavioral changes, including demographic data and crime statistics, Ekaterina Schulmann attempts to trace an evolution of public opinion in Russia from the final erosion of the Crimean consensus in 2018 until into the full-scale war in 2023. Inglehart–Welzel World Values Survey results and studies of proto-party groups ("political preference clouds'') are used in this overview in an attempt to sketch possible lines of behavior of a post-authoritarian society in a weakened state of power.
