Further Details
Abstract "The first part of the paper contains analysis of elite reproduction/ circulation in Ukraine in 2002-2011, taking two political power branches - legislative and executive - at the national level. In the second part of the paper empirical evidence showing connectedness of various elite groups by circulation patterns is presented. The last part of the paper suggests interpretation of the network functioning throughout the aforementioned period due to various subgroups and positions of individuals (i.e. MPs and ministers). The impact of network density and cohesion is evaluated with the legislative initiatives submitted by the elite members." (author's abstract)
