Socio-Labor Precarization in Russia: National and Subnational Features
Nowadays, the aggravation of the problem of unstable and insecure employment in the world pushed a new wave of investigations provided by ILO and international teams (SUPI, ESOPE Projet etc.).
The specific feature of precarization processes in Russia is that it is mostly determined by inner factors. Among the most significant of them are: liberalization of the economy (and almost complete denial of labor standards in 1990s); uneven regional development and high level of labor market differentiation by territorial, sectorial, professional, demographic and other specific features.
The authors examine challenges of socio-labor precarization and insecure employment diffusion in one of the regions of the Russian Federation - in the Republic of Bashkortostan. On the bases of sociological and statistical data the authors provide analysis of prerequisites, symptoms and aftereffects of insecure employment extension in Bashkortostan; identifies national and regional peculiarities of socio-labor precarization and suggest instruments for measuring and monitoring it.
