From democracy to disorder? Comparing governing strategies in the North Caucasus

Alexey Gunya

Nevertheless, they demonstrate dramatically different central-local power relationships, which impact on both development and conflict within their respective territories. Comparisons of the two regions can provide clues about how methods of governance within the Russian Federation can foster long-term stability and conflict resolution.
