Marina Kurkchiyan will discuss A Sociology of Justice in Russia, which features contributions from a number of scholars who studied Russia empirically and in-depth, through extensive field research, observations in courts, and interviews with judges and other legal professionals.
A number of tensions in the everyday experiences of justice in Russia are identified and the concept of the ‘administerial model of justice’ is introduced to illuminate some of the less obvious layers of Russian legal tradition including: file-driven procedure, extreme legal formalism combined with informality of the pre-trial proceedings, followed by ritualistic format of the trial. The underlying argument is that Russian justice is a much more complex system than is commonly supposed and that it both requires and deserves a more nuanced understanding.
