The Revival of Pronatalist Family Policy in 21st century Russia: A Return to the Past, or a New Social Constructivism Practice?

His study is the multi-disciplinary approach of a demographer capable of combining historical and sociological approaches to the study of public policy with quantitative analysis of the processes of family formation, family planning and childbearing in different periods. Demographic analysis, for estimating changes in period and cohort fertility indicators, is used to determine the actual results of pronatalist policies undertaken earlier in Russia, and in other countries. The historical comparison of policy instruments in Putin's Russia with other historical examples are important for understanding the essence of the political regime that is on the way of construction in Russia. Over the last decade, Russian state intervention in private life has greatly increased, with top down efforts to control demography, industry, labor, culture, society and the family. Post-Communist Russia is attempting to re-patriarchalize gender and family through a number of state initiatives closely connected to nationalist goals. He examines the historical roots of the modern demographic and family policy in Russia in the wider international context in order to find the satisfactory conceptual account of the conservative twist in recent policy.
