Abstract

The article discusses the problems and prospects for the welfare state paradigm

in the global context, and in relation to Russian social realities. International,

Russian, and regional statistics and sociological research data are presented,

reflecting the relevance to Russian society of such problems as social inequality,

dissatisfaction with the dynamics of living standards and the quality of life,

a low level of interpersonal and institutional trust and civil activity among

broad strata of the population.

The authors conclude that at the new stage of Russian history, which began in

the “post-Crimean period,” a broad scientific discussion is needed on the directions

and practical possibilities of building a welfare state in the Russian

Federation.
