State, Society and Mobilization under Putin

The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) and The University of Oslo (UiO) arranged a a seminar on the political climate towards social mobilization in Russia.

Since the 2011-12 electoral protest cycle, Russia has experienced far-reaching changes in civil society organization and social movement activity. What conditions enable or disable social protest movements and civil society organization in Russia? How does the state try to govern society? How do Russians perceive the deliveries and non-deliveries of Putin's third period?
