Anti-Extremism Policies in Russia and How they Work in Practice

January 14, 2013 // 12:00pm1:00pm

Anti-extremist legislation in contemporary Russia has become notorious for its vagueness and frequent misuse. Why is this the case? In addition to authoritarian political rule, a wide range of other factors come into play in connection with the law being abused and misused. They include public demand for tough state response to sensitive problems, widespread ethnic and religious prejudices, bureaucratic inertia, counter-productive approaches in academic and broader expert community, etc. All of the above factors can be illustrated by specific examples from current law enforcement practice.
