Technologies Of Settlement Of The Protest: Kushtau Case


In today's world, most protests with objective or subjective causes cannot be resolved through administrative directives. Protest cases of a new type are characterized by variability of development and require a meaningful and responsible approach in their resolution, excluding physical suppression of mass actions and based on consensus and mediation. The article explores the strategy of protest behavior, including communications, institutions of influence and techniques of manipulation. Particular scientific attention is paid to the role of digital technologies in resolving social contradictions peacefully. Measures are proposed that can reduce tension in public relations and the mass nature of street actions, as well as increase the responsibility of people through digital dialogue platforms. The purpose of the study is to analyze digital, expert and mass technologies for resolving protests, evaluate their applicability and effectiveness using the example of a specific case (environmental protest in the Republic of Bashkortostan "Kushtau"). It is concluded that digital activism and the involvement of the interested public in the discussion of controversial issues can reduce the level of conflict and prevent protest. The disclosure of the presented provisions was facilitated by the use of institutional, behavioural, systemic and communication approaches used in the study of socio-political phenomena and processes. The scientific and practical significance of the study lies in the modern technology of institutions and conflict resolution practices necessary for understanding the current protests in the world.
