Abstract [en]

With the collapse of Communism, statistics relating to previously ‘taboo’ phenomena such as homicide became available in the Soviet Union for the first time in over 50 years. The current study builds on several recent studies of homicide in Russia by extending both its time-frame and geographical coverage. Taking data from the end of the tsarist (1910) and Communist (1989) periods, the study maps the changes that occurred in the geographical distribution of homicide rates in ‘European Russia’ across the Soviet years. While non-Russian areas tended to remain or become less violent, Russia became more violent. These differences may have had a cultural component underlying them which was further exacerbated by the role of the state in the Soviet period.

Abstract [en]

Using official socio-economic and vital statistics data from the end of the tsarist period, this study builds on and extends previous investigations of homicide in early twentieth-century Europe by examining which social-structural factors were associated with the variation in homicide rates among the 50 provinces of European Russia in 1910. The results of negative binomial regression show heavy drinking to be positively associated, and population density and literacy inversely associated, with provincial homicide rates. These findings suggest that the tension between modernity and tradition, which was more generally evident in Russian society during this period, may also have underpinned the regional variation observed in aggregate-level homicide rates. Moreover, the high rural homicide rates seen in both tsarist Russia and at the end of the Soviet period might indicate that the 'criminological transition' that may have occurred in other Western countries during the course of the twentieth century could have taken a different form or have been delayed in Russia, due at least in part to the actions and policies of the Soviet state.

4. Risk factors for intimate partner violence against women in St. Petersburg, Russia

Abstract [en]

This exploratory study examines which risk factors are associated with intimate partner violence against women in St. Petersburg, Russia. Women attending two crisis centers and a birthing house constituted the study sample. The male partner's frequent alcohol consumption and seeing his father hit his mother in childhood were associated with an increased risk of violence, whereas living in a communal apartment reduced the risk of intimate partner violence. The importance of crisis centers in Russia is highlighted by the study, as the women who turn to them are likely to have experienced more severe forms of violence.
