Li M. - Corporate social responsibility in Russia: sociocultural aspect pp. 1-9


Abstract: The subject of this research is the cultural stipulation of goals and practices of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) – the modern paradigm of regulation the relationship between society and business. The developed in Western cultural context concept of corporate social responsibility, is often declared as the universal; however, a number of studies demonstrate that the differences in cultural values significantly affect business practices and goals. On the example of the Russian corporate sector, the author underlines that in defining the goals and practices of CSR, an important role is played not only by institutional, but also value-normative factors. The research leans on analysis of the data of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, Russian Institute of Directors, as well as the results of expert survey conducted among the representatives of major Russian corporations. In the course of this work, the author determines the role of specific value orientation of the Russian culture of company’s business with regards to the corporate social culture. In particular, the combination of values from distance to power, collectivism, and avoidance of uncertainty underlies the paternalistic model of labor relations and manifests in the high importance of social responsibility of the companies before the employees. The significance of hierarchical relationships in business culture also leads to the high role of personal values of management as a factor that influences the corporate social responsibility. Special attention is given to the new aspects of CSR crucial for the modern information society.

Boronoev P.G. - Social ill-being as a factor of suicidal behavior of minors in the Republic of Buryatia pp. 10-16


Abstract: This article examines the social ill-being as a factor of suicidal behavior of the minors. The author analyzes the factors of social ill-being of population in the Republic of Buryatia, as well as its impact upon suicidal behavior of the minors. Over the recent years, there have been recorded 39.6 cases of suicide per 100,000 people, which is double the nationwide average. It ranks 4th among the 85 subjects of the Russian Federation by the frequency of suicides. It is determined that one of the factors of social ill-being is the low level of personal income in the republic, income inequality, and presence of categories of people with income below subsistence level. The survey data among the school students demonstrates the correlational link not only of the unlawful behavior, asocial lifestyle, but also the consistent depressive emotional state with the socioeconomic factors. The acquired important applied and theoretical positions on the social nature of suicidal behavior are of particular interest from the perspective of psychology, sociology and social work.
Karpikova I.S. - Typology of the practices of social dependency in modern Russia pp. 17-25


Abstract: This article is dedicated to the analysis of practices of social dependency and parasitism conducted based on the results of empirical study. Social dependency, being the product of situation of the socioeconomic dependency from the society, can emerge  as a result of the objective factors (senior age, illness, disability), as well as in form of the conscious desire of an individual to consume public resources not giving anything in return. At the same time, regardless of the circumstances and factors of its origination, dependency is economically burdensome for the society and destructive for its moral principles, and thus requires initiating practical measures aimed at reducing its proliferation. The analysis of the content of practices of social dependency and parasitism was carried out in 2017-2018 through the sociological survey in one of the subjects of the Russian Federation – Irkutsk Oblast. The strategy was based on the combination of qualitative and quantitative methods of collecting information, expert evaluations of the social protection specialists, and opinion of the common respondents. One of the goals lies in classification of the practices of social dependency and parasitism for the purpose of systematization of the newly accumulated knowledge and creation of the information base for development of practical measures on reducing the expansion of such phenomenon. The author introduces the following typological attributes: affiliation of the subjects of dependency practices to certain population categories; factors of emergence and maintenance of dependency practices; legal consequences of implementation of dependency practices. Grouping of the determined practices of social dependency and parasitism in accordance with the highlighted typological attributed represents the foundation for identifying the main vectors of work with separate population categories aimed at minimization of practices of social dependency and parasitism.
