Overthrown Democracy under Putin
Interview with Françoise Daucé — Directrice d'études — EHESS (CERCEC)
The authoritarian turn of the Russian regime in the 2000’s has refuted the democratic transition theory. Is this turning back to authoritarianism a follow-up to Soviet History? Or should this turn rather be analyzed as a new way of exercising power in the internet era? According to Françoise Daucé, Putin’s government, by invading the civil society’s sphere, disposseses the opposition of its themes and claims. Authoritarianism therefore goes well along the development of new medias and makes criticisms difficult to express. What parallels can be drawn with western regimes in which populist trends are growing?
