STATE’S ROLE IN IMPLEMENTATION OF MODERNIZATION PROJECTS: FLEXIBILITY OF RUSSIAN AUTHORITIES

The need for scientific understanding of the phenomenon of modernization of the Russian society is stipulated by complexity and inconsistency of this process during the past 20 years of post-Soviet history. Modernization processes launched in contemporary Russia occupy special place in a row of these phenomena that are being carried out in other countries.

Modernization processes and the problems linked to them have not received comprehensive theoretical explanation in scientific literature dedicated to this topic. In the article, the author makes attempts to examine several peculiarities in the development of modernization in contemporary Russia in a specified retrospective.

SOME ASPECTS OF POLITICAL WORLD ORDER IN THE GLOBALIZATION

Globalization makes the world very quickly becoming more and more interdependent one. But it has not yet developed a system of world order corresponding to the achieved level of international division of labor. The level of the global world management remains extremely low.

The old political mechanisms are unable to provide effective management of social processes. The world faces a global crisis of governability. The article presents the author's vision of this crises resolution based on discussions within the Strategic Social Initiative "Russia 2045".

Key words: globalization, global problems, world order, monopolarity, westernization, scientific and technical progress, Westphalian system, democracy, party, civil society, ideology, Russian cosmism, Homo sapiens, transhumanism, mass consciousness, national sovereignty and international organizations.
