Russia's state system has changed significantly since 1991, but the question of how the country should be governed has not been answered. Russia's constitutional framework is weak and inherently flawed, and the balance of political and economic power between the centre and the regions is ill-defined. In the absence of a firm constitutional settlement, regional elites have consolidated power, restricting the growth of local democracy and frustrating attempts at graass-roots economic reform. This book argues that establishing an effective and regulated relationship between the centre and the regions requires greater decentralisation, but devolution need not threaten Russia's integrity if it is transparent and based on a greater respect for the rule of law.
Martin Nicholson retired from the British Diplomatic Service in 1997, after postings in Moscow, Prague and Vienna. Between 1987 and 1994, he was Adviser on Soviet and Russian Affairs at the Cabinet Office, London
