Abstract
This book examines the institutional foundations of democratic processes in the Post-Soviet transition era and demonstrates the importance of institutional regulation in social dilemmas for stable democratic development. It is difficult to define how modern democratic regimes depend on institutional factors. Such factors are not thoroughly researched by public intellectuals, and some of them are unknown. In many cases, institutional processes are ignored, not because of ill bad intentions, but due to the methodological impossibility of complex research. Taking into account the importance of understanding institutional character of democracy for social knowledge development and improvement of socio-political practice in Russian conditions to construct stable political foundations for modernization reforms, one needs to study social dilemmas which can help researchers understand the institutional features of contemporary democracy in a globalized world. This monograph is for sociologists, philosophers, political scientists and all those who are interested in understanding democracy and institutions in contemporary society
