About Political Sociology as the Basis of Political Consulting at Russian State University for the Humanities

The course examines how knowledge of the main areas of political sociology is used in political consulting. The difference of this course is that political consulting is aimed at practice, that is, it takes from sociology those knowledge and methods that can be applied to analysis, forecasting and influence on political reality.

The course represents various subjects and objects of political consulting. State institutions (legislative and executive authorities, as well as local governments) are taken as subjects added public organizations and private structures (business, pressure groups, lobbies and other associations). Specific examples show how they can use sociological approaches to promote their interests in the political space.

The objects of political consulting are state institutions and private structures, which political participants want to influence in the decision­making process and their implementation. The focus of political consulting can also be specific problems and situations inside the country and abroad that need to be resolved, as well as building a "road map" how to do it.

In general, the course is designed to provide students with primary skills in political consulting. Lectures contains many data of concrete sociological surveys, examples of publicities, illustrations.
