Oct.1 2019. “To Bribe or Not to Bribe? How Young Russians View Corruption” with Irina Olimpieva, IERES, Washington

Presentation of the results of a study conducted as part of the project “Education of intolerance to corruption among Russian youth”


10.1.19 Olimpieva

The wide participation of young people in the anti-corruption protests of 2017 organized by Alexei Navalny was a surprise for political scientists and sociologists who usually consider Russian youth to be politically indifferent and apathetic. The presence of young people in anti-corruption protests suggested that young Russians are less tolerant of corruption than older generations. The main purpose of this presentation will be to discuss whether the younger generation perceives corruption differently, and if so, what are the differences? How active are young people in their rejection of corruption? Can a new generation of Russians become a social force capable of initiating social and political changes that will lead to a decrease in corruption in the country? The presentation draws on the results of an empirical study of corruption perceptions among young people in Russia conducted in Spring 2019.
