Information Management and Authoritarian Legitimation in “The Direct Line with Vladimir Putin”
Professor Chapman’s talk examines the Kremlin’s use of nominally-democratic communication strategies to reinforce Russia’s non-democratic regime. Using a detailed case study of the popular “Direct Line with Vladimir Putin” broadcast, she finds that these strategies mitigate information problems and increase regime support—though not without consequences.

Hannah Chapman is the Karen and Adeed Dawisha Assistant Professor of Political Science at Miami University. Her research examines information manipulation and public opinion in Russia and the former Soviet Union.
