Environmental movements in Russia (An example from the Baikal region)
by Dampilon, Zhargal, M.A., The University of Arizona, 2011, 66; 1502756
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis presents the analysis of environmental movements in Russia. Through a collective memory and discourse framework, this study reviews the overlap and disparity in perceptions of environmental movements in the Soviet Union and Russia. The portrait that emerges from the analysis of the environmental movements suggests that the impact of environmental movements in Russia may be limited in part because it has developed in contravention to existing discourses. More importantly, the context and underlying assumptions of environmental movements are not formulated in ways that are compatible with existing collective identities in Russian society.
