What can we say about the narratives on the renovation program in Moscow?
At this seminar, we discussed the results of the primary analysis of the texts. The stories told by the parties of the debate may follow different strategies and have different plots, but what is their level of narrativeness? We tried to summarize the plots and messages around which these texts could be structured
The context in which the stories are told is certainly important to fully understand them, but it is difficult to assess it using only quantitative indicators. That is why, at the current stage of work, we pay attention to the qualitative analysis of texts. However, there are other factors that can guide policy debates, as well as the implicit motivations of actors, to keep in mind. The debate around the renovation program allows us to see not only the strategies and arguments of the parties, but also some broader aspects of the decision-making system in Russia and the specifics of its public administration.
