Please join the CPPI Research Cluster for a seminar with Prof. Yoram Gorlizki, 'Sub-State Dictatorship: Networks, Loyalty and Institutional Change in the Soviet Union'.
Yoram is a Professor of Politics at the University of Manchester, and his research centres on Russia and the Soviet Union, focusing on comparative dictatorship, law and legal order, and the role of trust networks in politics. Over the last three years Yoram has been involved in two major research projects. The first is 'Networks and Hierarchies in the Soviet Provinces', the purpose of which was to chart the evolution of political networks and informal relations at the regional level over three distinct phases of Soviet rule. The second is 'Taking Dictatorship Seriously: Justice and the Constitution in Soviet Russia' which examines the emergence of the Soviet criminal justice system in the aftermath of World War II, taking the story through to the end of the Khrushchev era. Based on archival sources and interviews, it traces the origins of de-Stalinization to a new brand of legal-bureaucratic rules which first came to prominence in the late Stalin era.
