Read the Editorial in Russian
The present issue of the International Journal on Multicultural Societies, addressing the contemporary debate on democratic governance in multi-religious societies through an investigation of the Russian Federation, is an updated version of IJMS, Vol.2, No.2 originally published in English and in French.
All articles have been up-dated so as to take into account recent developments in the field of religious policy in the Russian Federation. The article by Mitrokhin Nikolai Aleksandrovich has been especially prepared for this edition. I would like to use the opportunity to thank all authors, and in particular our Guest Editor Kathy Rousselet, for their active co-operation in making this collection available to a Russian-speaking readership and thus to contribute to the internationalisation of social science research.
