The present study aims to identify, describe, and empirically assess factors promoting and hindering implementation of multicultural policy in Russia. The main task is an empirical test of the theoretical grounds of Canadian multiculturalism. The team will test three hypotheses of intercultural relationships (multiculturalism hypothesis, integration hypothesis, and contact hypothesis) in polycultural regions of Russia (Moscow and North Caucasus: Kabardino-Balkaria, North Ossetia–Alania, Dagestan). The main deliverable is a list of empirically-based recommendations for developing immigration and intercultural policy in Russia that would take into account both international experience and the specifics of Russian context.
