Russia’s Police Reform – Medvedev’s Test?
ISDP POLICY BRIEF, No. 41, November 04, 2010.

Abstract:
President Dimitry Medvedev has made police reform in Russia one of his largest and most important reform projects. The police reform could be seen as a part of the larger anti-corruption program that he launched in 2008. These reforms are long overdue and badly needed; the Russian police force is one of the most notoriously corrupt state bodies in Russia.
