"Elections by Design" - based on a skilful blend of statistical analyses and detailed case studies - seeks to uncover how electoral rules are decided within the Russian Federation, and by whom. To enhance our understanding of electoral system choice, Moraski investigates the origins of the legislative electoral systems in the eighty-nine regions of the Russian Federation. These subnational units serve as a natural experiment by allowing an opportunity to observe the creation of representative institutions in a state in transition from authoritarian rule. Despite the unique qualities of Russia's political transition, "Elections by Design" reveals insights that can be applied to other transitioning states.
