Political techniques in modern authoritarian regimes
Special Project » Political techniques in modern authoritarian regimes

Over the last century we have observed the active dissemination of new authoritarian regimes that force out democratic ones. Modern authoritarianism can no longer be perceived as an archaic form of a political system. It demonstrated viability, sustainability, and expansion potential. It is largely related to the formation of new technological forms of control over various spheres, as well as to the use of a wide range of modern technical resources that enable the production of large-scale media pictures of an alternative reality, provide for the formation and direction of the public opinion, influence on forming an identity, and so on. This new political techniques reality requires special treatment, both from the practical and from the research points of view. The project “Political techniques in modern authoritarian regimes” seeks to give a meaning and analyze various aspects of technological support, society’s and people’s features that enable large-scale propaganda and manipulations of public opinion. Apart from that, it also seeks to find ways to confront the unfolding consciential war.
