Book project

Dollbaum, J.M. (in preparation). A movement’s troubled legacy. Protest and activism in Russia’s regions after the ‘For Fair Elections’ movement.

This book project extends the results of my PhD thesis by tracing the effects of two instances of nation-wide protest mobilization – the For Fair Elections movement of 2011/12 and Navalny’s anti-corruption protests of 2017 – on local activism. This will inform the social movement scholarship on protest legacies, but it will also contribute to the research on the functioning of electoral authoritarian regimes.
