Title: THINKING ABOUT DEMOCRACY: INTERVIEWS WITH RUSSIAN CITIZENS
 
Author: Ellen Carnaghan
 
Description: Using new evidence from thirty formal in-depth interviews conducted with Russian citizens in 1998, this paper dissects Russian popular attitudes toward democracy. Rather than asking the usual question of whether Russians are democratic enough for their new institutions, it examines how Russian political institutions affect the thinking of ordinary citizens. Listening to Russian voices makes it clear that what looks like flawed support for democracy can be more accurately understood as a fairly nuanced critique of flawed democracy in practice.
