Contributor(s): Tomila Lankina, Rodion Skovoroda

Released on 14 July 2014.

Tomila Lankina, Associate Professor of International Relations, LSE and Rodion Skovoroda, Assistant Professor Nottingham University, discuss their application of the “last digit” fraud detection statistical technique to analyse the interaction between electoral fraud and mass protests in Russia, and why electoral authoritarian regimes should be wary of mass protests when they try to reproduce themselves through electoral fraud.
