Russian Political Regime Change and Strategies of Diversity Management: From a Multinational Federation towards a Nation-State

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This paper explores the impact of the political regime change in post-Soviet Russia on the country’s strategy of diversity management. The paper will start with an overview of possible government responses to diversity. In this conceptual framework, the paper will follow the evolution of the place envisaged for diversity in the country’s political identity and political institutions in the post-Soviet period. The study will propose a periodization based on contrasting responses of the state to the diversity challenge in the 1990s, 2000s and 2010s. The political regime change correlated with the shift in the political institutional model from a multinational federation towards a nation-state. The new vision of political identity was reflected in the strategies of diversity management.
