This site collects and systematizes information relevant to the academic study of protest in Russia, past and present. It is maintained by Mischa Gabowitsch, a sociologist and historian based at the Einstein Forum in Potsdam, Germany. Among other things, it includes a list of data sources, data sets, and databases. On the left you will find RSS feeds from Russian blogs devoted to studying or monitoring protest. The chronological bibliographies, which so far mostly include studies published in Russian, were compiled by Olesya Lobanova (Perm State University), one of the authors of the Russian-language blog “The Challengers: Contentious Politics in Russia.“ So was the list of conferences and workshops.

The site is still under construction. Suggestions, additions, and offers to create or maintain individual sections, are highly welcome.
