Network Communities and Institutions in a Glocalizing Society: Power Struggles Over Socium

04 Jun , 17:00–18:15
The Human Factor in Responding to Global Challenges
Pavilion G, conference hall G3

Recent experience shows that social groups and network communities that are not bound into rigid hierarchical structures but united, among other things, by the challenges of the "new ethics" are increasingly engaged in a struggle with traditional institutions of civil society and the state for a dominant role in defining agendas, values, meanings and modern micro-ideologies. To what extent is this trend characteristic of certain countries? What role can it play in the development of Russia in the near future, and what solutions should traditional institutions of civil society and the political class offer in order to ensure that competition between networks and institutions does not lead to chaos? On the basis of the successful Russian experience of partnership between the state and communities during the pandemic the leading experts will try to answer these questions.
