New Russia Barometer VIII, 19-29 January 2000
New Russia Barometer IX, 14-18 April 2000
New Russia Barometer X, 17 June - 3 July 2001

This study comprises three NRB surveys: VIII (January 2000, post-Duma election survey), IX (April 2000, post-presidential election survey) and X (June-July 2001 survey). The project aimed at using the third round of Russian elections (to the Duma in 1999 and to the Presidency in 2000) to understand what type of government is being consolidated in Russia, whether democratic, undemocratic, or an incompletely or partly democratic hybrid. The proposal set out five objectives:

1) to examine the demands and expectations of the voters through a pair of post-election sample surveys
2) to examine the extent to which Russian experience of the new regime shows it does or does not accord with the rule of law or is corrupt
3) to analyse popular support for the new regime and for undemocratic alternatives
4) to compare developments within the Russian Federation with experience of democratisation in Central and Eastern Europe
5) to disseminate up-to-date survey information during and after the two elections through a special purpose Russia Votes web site
