On Human and Collective Dignity in Russia

Putin has built his leadership on collective identity politics and Russia’s perceived need to be recognized by the world. This concluding chapter presents three short vignettes to highlight the central issues in state-society relations in contemporary Russia and to argue that the issue of individual and collective recognition is central to state-society relations inside Russia. In all three stories we see individuals denied their dignity and recognition by the state. These issues could be used by political entrepreneurs to construct a new frame that is likely to resonate with the broader population in Russia and present an alternative to the system created under Putin’s leadership.

Keywords:   individual dignity, collective dignity, state-society relationship, alternative legitimation frames, Russia’s future, political opposition
