Demokratizatsiya: The Journal of Post-Soviet Democratization
About the Journal
From perestroika to Yeltsin, to Putin, and after, Demokratizatsiya is the indispensable international journal on post-Soviet democratization. It focuses on the end of the Soviet Union and the contemporary transformation of its successor states. From dissidents to presidents, readers recognize Demokratizatsiya as a tool for building institutions from the ashes of the USSR and communism. In each quarterly issue, distinguished scholars from around the world address politics, economics, social issues, legal systems, nationalities, international relations, and human rights. Recent articles have also addressed the post-Soviet countries' continuing struggles against crime and corruption.
