Demidova Y. - Models of social integration of the example of Anastasian ecovillages “Slavnoye” and “Kovcheg” pp. 1-7


Abstract: The focus of this research is the uniting motives and their implementation in the aforementioned communities. The work is based on the hypothesis about the existence of the established collectivism in Anastasian communities. On one hand, it was formed by the common ideological field of Anastasianism, while on the other – the problem of spatial social remoteness of the material and social resources of a city, which served as motivation for integration of the former residents as the ideological congregations. The process of “unification” leans on the demarcation of common interests and practices of the collective mutualism. The key method is the in-depth interview. The author also applied the method on nonrandom sample, snowball sampling – the selection of respondents in accordance with the references of local residents. The material presents interest due to the abundance of field observation in fairly close communities of present time, as well as provides an idea about the actual relationship between its members. Ecovillages “Slavnoye” and “Kovcheg”, in essence, are the communities of collective type, uniting people with various religious preferences. Many of them are the adherers of the New Age movement, while others self-identify themselves outside the ideological context. They see their belonging in sharing the universal human values: neighborliness, ban of abusive language and alcohol, property insurance, healthy eating, obtainment of personal freedom from the imposed city stereotypes. In general, the integrative models are based on the practical mutual help of the community members, financial self-sufficiency (carrying out of holiday events, festivals, joint labor artels), as well as religious and leisure practices. However, even within the ideological commonwealth, exists and opinion about the lack of societality despite the common behavioral norms, as well as sharing of responsibilities and single cultural orientation.

Prokofeva A.M., Kroshkina M.S. - Value orientations of a modern Muscovite in representations of Russian migrants pp. 21-28


Abstract: This article is dedicated to problematic of the values of Muscovites in representations of residents of the Russian regions. Moscow provides a broad range of opportunities, thus leading to high level of migration. Under the circumstances, the representations on the value orientations of Moscow citizens form with consideration of the opinions of migrants. The author analyzes the dominant value orientations of the Muscovites from the perspective of migrants, examines the representations of migrants about the Muscovites before and after moving to the capital, and determines the values of Muscovites in accordance with the residents of other regions. As an empirical base, the author used a sociological survey, which included two stages: implementation of the strategy of qualitative research, conducting 20 in-depth interviews with the migrants from 10 Russian regions; quantitative, surveying 250 local migrants. The results demonstrate that the key value orientations of Muscovites from the perspective of migrants are the following: financial security, career success, and active lifestyle. Among the instrumental values, one of the leading position was “joy of life”. Family as a value of Muscovites has taken a much lower place, while “love” held much higher positions.

Abstract: The subject of this research is the peculiarities, problems, and trends of development of the nonprofit sector in Kabardino-Balkar Republic. The object is the nonprofit organizations that are the liaison between government institutions, commercial organizations and society. The author meticulously examines the structure and dynamics of development of the nonprofit sector in the region. The research goal lies in specification of representation on the development trends of nonprofit organizations in modern Kabardino-Balkaria based on the analysis of quantitative characteristics of the rate of growth and structure of “thirds sector” in the republic. A conclusion is made that over the recent years, subsequent to the cutbacks in state funding, significantly decreases the number of registration of new nonprofit organizations in the region, which testifies to the fact that the key growth driver of the nonprofit sector is the government; the nonprofit organizations function within the life of the population to the various degree. However, due to the absence of mechanisms of public accountability of the nonprofits in the region, it is difficult to assess the efficiency of their work. The rate of development of the nonprofit sector in the republic falls short with respect to not only more socioeconomically prosperous regions of Russia, but also the regions of the North Caucasus Federal District with comparable indexes of the level and quality of life.
