Kalinin K, Mebane WR. Understanding Electoral Frauds Through Evolution of Russian Federalism: From ‘Bargaining Loyalty’ to ‘Signaling Loyalty’. 2010.
Notes:In this paper, the authors describe how the incentive for electoral fraud changes with the change in the system. Also in the case of authoritarian regime, the type of corruption follows the organizational style of the regime. Russia moved from a decentralized to a more centralized system under Putin and with these changes, an increase in the level of electoral corruption can be observed.
