Formula of Legal Impact  Pdf 16

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

Abstract. In modern society, there are large-scale and deep processes that are contradictory and, to a certain extent, subject to a weak scientific knowledge. There are many concepts and theories that have been around for centuries up to the present time. Moreover, these theories can be actually legal and derived from General theories and concepts. However, they clearly exaggerate the analysis of legal structures and underestimate the mechanism of the transformative impact of law on processes in society.
The article presents the interpretation of law as a mechanism for reflection and transformation of phenomena and processes. The development of the theory and concepts that influenced real processes is considered. Their advantages and weaknesses are noted. This makes it possible to analyze their impact on economic, social, political, technical and environmental development. There is some inconsistency between the goals, indicators achieved and actions taken, which are clearly dominated by pragmatic solutions.
A system of effective legal, organizational and other means has been developed to fill this gap and show correlations between these means, actual results and the level of development in different spheres of society and the state. A new scientific and legal development strategy — which is proposed — allows the combination of theoretical approaches and useful scientific and practical recommendations.

Keywords: law, legal regulators, legal force of acts, efficiency assessment, standard unit, public authorities, international legal norms.

Smart Regulation as the Basis for Improving Modern Law-Making  Pdf 16

M. L. Davydova

Volgograd State University, Volgograd 400062, Russian Federation

Abstract. Many of the modern law-making procedures (regulatory impact assessment, actual impact assessment, legal monitoring, etc.) and technologies (such as regulatory sandboxes) are commonly considered today as elements of “smart” regulation. Despite the active use of this concept in a modern law-making practice and academic research, its essence and differences from traditional legal regulation doesn't remain completely clear.
The purpose of the study is to determine the content and characteristics of smart regulation. This involves the following tasks: a study of the formation of this concept; a comparative analysis of conceptual approaches that have been consistently developed over the past few decades in states that are purposefully improving the traditional mechanism of lawmaking; analysis of regulatory tools used in the framework of smart regulation.
The research is conducted through analytical, comparative legal, prognostic methods.
The results of the study allow one to conclude that smart regulation includes the recommendations of previously emerging approaches such as less and better regulation. The specificity of the concept under consideration is that, using most of the provisions of the previous ones, it shifts the emphasis from the regulatory process to its result, focusing on achieving maximum effect in the least resourceconsuming way. The term “smart” as applied to technical devices is used when at a lower cost it is possible to discover new, previously inaccessible opportunities. Such an interpretation applies to legal regulation. At the macro level, this involves the identification of all possible decision centers and the inclusion of the most influential of them in the regulatory process. At the micro level, a search is underway for tools that can specifically and most effectively solve the problem. In addition to purely legal means, social, psychological, economic mechanisms of influence can be used here. The development of appropriate tools is carried out, in particular, on the basis of modern achievements in behavioral sciences, which allows us to predict the emergence of legal regulation to a new level, concealing both advantages and risks.

Keywords: smart regulation, law-making, legal impact, legal regulation, nudge.

On Legal Issues of the Alternation of Power  Pdf 16

V. A. Cherepanov

Stavropol State Agrarian University, Stavropol 355017, Russian Federation

Abstract. The issue of alternation of power has become particularly important in view of the constitutional changes determining the number of presidential tenure, but its scientific understanding leaves much to be desired. Scientific research in this field (based on different starting points) produces different perceptions from which opposite conclusions are drawn. It is not uncommon for alternation of power to be seen from a political perspective without proper legal reflection.
The aim of the study is to develop theoretical premises for a legal understanding of the alternation of power in general and of presidential power in particular. This goal is achieved by implementing the following tasks: theoretical interpretation of the concept “alternation of power”, comparative analysis of different approaches to its understanding, taking into account the constitutional practice of different countries, formulation of proposals on ways to resolve problematic issues and their constitutional (legislative) fixation.
The methodological basis of this scientific work is dialectical, systemic, comparative-legal, normative and other methods of cognition.
On the basis of a doctrinal interpretation of the constitutional model of public power, a conceptual approach considers the alternation of power not as a goal in itself, but solely as a means to achieve a different goal - to prevent the alienation of power from the individuals, which is proposed. Based on the historical experience of our country, a model of the alternation of presidential power consists of two interrelated parts, what is proposed here. First is the limitation of the presidential tenure to two terms. Second is the possibility of re-election after its expiry, which is granted to a person who enjoys the confidence of the people and has demonstrated his effectiveness in the presidency. Such extraordinary possibility of re-election, in the author's view, can only be granted by the people themselves through an extraordinary referendum held specifically on the subject. A similar model is proposed for resolving the issue of the alternation of the head of the constituent entity of the Russian Federation.

Keywords: alternation of power, presidentialism, limitation of the presidential tenure, conflict between the people and the power, alienation of power from the people, re-election to the president.

Abstract. The activity of ombudsmen is extremely popular in the society. Over 20 years (from 1998 to 2017) the ombudsman in the Russian Federation has received more than a million complaints. About a third of them are directly related to the activities of the courts, including the issues of fairness of judicial decisions in criminal cases. The article raises the question of the sufficiency of the powers of the ombudsman, of competition between various state bodies whose competence includes the protection of human rights and freedoms.
The main objective of the study is to develop recommendations for improving the legal regulation of relations between ombudsmen and courts. To achieve this goal, the author has set goals to compare Russian and foreign legislation, identify the main constitutional models of interaction, identify possible shortcomings and propose measures to eliminate them.
The research literature is the regulatory legal acts of the Russian Federation and its constituent entities, as well as 72 foreign countries and reports of ombudsmen.
It is concluded that the model of interaction between the ombudsmen and the judiciary, formed in modern Russia, is optimal. This is evident due to its constitutional development, the system of state bodies, the status of the President and the historically established role of the prosecutor's office. It is proposed to use this institution more widely in the mechanism of pre-trial dispute resolution. It is also necessary to expand the organizational conditions for consideration by the Ombudsman of appeals on compliance with criminal and criminal procedure laws.

Keywords: protection of human rights, ombudsman, judicial authority, prosecutor's office.

Judicial Review: A Means of Legal Protection or of Law-Making? (On the Issue of Constitutional Features of an Optimal Model)  Pdf 16

S. A. Gracheva

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

Abstract. This work deals with the phenomenon of judicial review (control) as a judicial function. Its (ideas) evolution (largely under the influence of the convergence of legal systems) allows us to consider it in two ways. On the one hand, judicial review serves to ensure the hierarchical order of legal regulation (more embodying its normative perspective). In this sense, its spreading assessment (beyond the envisaged powers to judicially challenge legal acts of various levels) is associated with the risks of judicial activism and legal making, which are historically stem from the continental legal tradition. On the other hand, the named judicial function can be identified with attention to it as an important component of judicial guarantee and protection of rights and freedoms (as a legal remedy). However, the acceptance of this aspect of judicial review, despite the obvious recognition of such goal-setting (including those on the example of domestic experience), is associated with the difficulties of its “formalization” (by criteria, objects of legal assessment) and, accordingly, procedural (methodological) support. Such a dual approach to judicial review is largely determined by a comprehensive view of the problem of the judicial guarantee of the Constitution (the role of the court in ensuring the constitutionality of regulation), which is also manifested primarily from the position of its social (or natural-legal) interpretation. In this sense, the basis for judicial review are constitutionally provided approaches that have become a consequence of the "continental" development of integrative ideas about law (legal thinking), revealing the possibilities of combining the concepts of law, its instrumental enrichment. In this respect, the constitutionally significant (promising) model of judicial review receives universalization, first of all, due to its enrichment with general legal principles (recognized ideas of law), which have found constitutional recognition in varying degrees of concretization, consistency, and, in general, understood as a "normative basis" courts referring to general legal provisions (as criteria of legal regulation). On this general legal basis, the topic of direct application of the Constitution of the Russian Federation by the courts is being developed. Its development stages show attention to judicial review from the standpoint of exercising normative control (review over compliance with the priority norm) in relation to the idea of human rights as an object of judicial protection.

Abstract. In recent decades, the development of innovative technologies and artificial intelligence systems has also been studied by legal scholars. An unambiguous understanding of artificial intelligence as a category of constitutional law, as an object of constitutional legal regulation and as a subject of legal relations has not yet been achieved. Of course, the issue of recognizing artificial intelligence as a subject of constitutional and legal relations is not yet relevant. However, issues of legislative regulation of basic, including social, human rights in the context of the development and use of artificial intelligence systems are already on the agenda. To form a high-quality system of legal regulation of social rights in the digital space, it is advisable to monitor the current legislation in order to consolidate the possibility of using artificial intelligence in the implementation of human social rights.
The purpose of the study is to identify gaps in the legislative regulation of certain social rights using artificial intelligence. The goal is specified in the following tasks: to conduct a doctrinal analysis of the category of “artificial intelligence” in legal science and other branches of knowledge; identify the use of this concept in the current Russian legislation, show the conceptual constitutional guidelines in the use of artificial intelligence; based on the foundations of the constitutional system, the system of constitutional and legal guarantees of human rights, to study the features of legal regulation of certain social rights using the latest technologies and artificial intelligence.
The methodological basis is recognized by the general scientific and private scientific methods of cognition used in legal science. The conclusions are based on scientific research in the field of doctrinal understanding of the category of artificial intelligence, on the analysis of normative legal acts, which regulate social rights and freedoms.
Main results and brief conclusions: the definition of artificial intelligence of constitutional law acceptable for science is proposed; conceptual constitutional attitudes in the field of the use of artificial intelligence are defined; based on the analysis of doctrinal and strategic documents adopted in the Russian Federation and focused on the development of artificial intelligence in the Russian state, the tendencies of using AI in the realization of social rights and freedoms are formulated, the features of the realization of some social rights using artificial intelligence are shown, as well as the gaps of their legislative regulation and conclusions are drawn and aimed at improving legislation in this area.

Keywords: social rights of a man and citizen, artificial intelligence, legal regulation, strategy, national interests.

Early Retirement Benefits for Insured Persons with Family Responsibilities  Pdf 16

E. G. Azarova

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

Abstract. Russian law provides certain categories of citizens with family responsibilities with the opportunity to receive an old-age insurance pension before reaching the generally established retirement age. The criteria for the provision of such a pension, the conditions required for its appointment, their theoretical justification and the problems of improving legislation are of great scientific interest.
The purpose of the study is a comprehensive analysis of the general and special conditions for granting the right to an old-age insurance pension to the following categories of citizens: women who have given birth and raised three or more children; women with two children working in the northern regions of the country; parents and guardians of persons with disabilities since childhood. The objectives of the study: to determine whether the possibility of receiving early retirement benefits is available for these individuals; to analyze how accurate and unambiguous the concepts used in the regulation of the relevant relations are; to study the theoretical justification of early retirement benefits and proposals for further improvement of the legislation in this area.
Research methods: formal logical interpretation, systemic and comparative analysis.
The performance of socially significant functions of upbringing and family care for children, including those with disabilities, by insured citizens is associated with increased psychological, emotional and physical stress, and high material costs. These objectively significant circumstances, as well as the difficulties of dual employment - at home and at work for hire - give the legislator grounds to establish special conditions of pension provision for them. Early retirement of these individuals should not be associated with the promotion of fertility. It is fair and appropriate for any demographic situation. The understanding of the circle of people who perform family responsibilities for children and need pension benefits changes over time, which also leads to its expansion. At the same time, the possibility of receiving a pension should be the same for all insured citizens with equal family responsibilities and sufficient insurance experience, regardless of their salary level.

Keywords: old-age insurance pension, persons with family responsibilities, reduced retirement age, women who raised three or more children; northerners by children; parents and guardians of disabled people since childhood.

The Impact of Digitalization on the Implementation of the Executive Authorities’ Powers  Pdf 16

P. P. Kabytov, O. E. Starodubova

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

Abstract. Digitalization of public administration is a global trend. The ambitious programs and projects implemented in the Russian Federation to digitalize public administration have an impact on the administrative and legal status of Executive authorities.
The purpose of the study is to determine the consequences of digitalization for the mechanism for implementing the powers of Executive authorities.
Methods: formal legal, formal logical, legal interpretation, and General scientific methods.
Digital technologies are playing an increasingly important role in the implementation of the executive authorities' powers. The use of digital technologies not only improves the efficiency of control and supervision activities and the availability of public services, but also affects the mechanism for implementing these powers by executive authorities. Under the influence of digitalization, the process of implementing the executive authorities' powers, the order and principles of their interaction with each other, citizens and organizations is being transformed. New forms of control and supervision measures and types of public services are emerging. There is a change in the model of regulation of certain spheres of society. Although the digitalization of public administration has had an impact on all elements of the administrative and legal status of executive authorities, the practice of implementing control and supervisory powers and powers to provide public services by executive authorities has been most affected. The authors demonstrate the impact of the use of digital technologies in the implementation of the powers of Executive authorities on legislation on the organization of public services and legislation on state control (supervision).

Keywords: digitalization, competence, functions, powers, state, executive authorities.

Features of the Formation of the Eurasian Regional Model of International Legal Regulation of Research Mobility  Pdf 16

R. Sh. Davletgildeev, S. I. Tsygantsova

Kazan Federal University, Kazan 420008, Russian Federation

Abstract. The article reveals the theoretical problems of formation of the Eurasian regional model of international legal regulation of researchers' mobility and gives the author's recommendations for their elimination.
Its aim is to study the main documents of research mobility in the various regional organizations of Eurasia. The objectives of the study include the formulation of a common understanding of research mobility, the identification of strengths and weaknesses in the regulation of this phenomenon in Eurasia, as well as the formation of recommendations.
The article uses both general theoretic (analysis, generalization and systemic approach) and special-legal methods (historical-legal, formal-legal, comparative, as well as the method of legal forecasting).
Based on the results of the study, the authors conclude that Eurasian regional organizations have every chance to establish effective cooperation on legal issues of research mobility both among themselves and with third countries. However, some shortcomings have been identified. These include the lack of a system of available sources and other legal problems, both in law-making and in law enforcement. The authors also note that there is an extremely small number of legal documents regulating research mobility as well as the prevailing number of acts of a recommendatory nature and blanket norms. In addition, insufficient attention was noted to the implementation of mechanisms for the mobility of researchers in the network universities of the CIS and SСO. At the same time, the accumulated potential of cooperation in the CIS, the EAEU, the Union State of Belarus and Russia, the SCO, the Turkic Council can be used in the formation of the Eurasian regional model of international legal regulation of researchers' mobility. In our view, the EAEU has the greatest potential expectations, as integration has led to significant successes in the legal regulation of many other areas. In addition, it is worth paying attention to the experience of the Turkic Council, whose practice in promoting scientific cooperation and academic mobility could be taken into account in the EAEU.

Keywords: research mobility, academic mobility, CIS, EAEU, Union State of Belarus and Russia, Shanghai Cooperation Organization, Turkic Council, Eurasian regional model of international legal regulation of research mobility.

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

Abstract. Following the results of the 22nd diplomatic session of the Hague Conference on Private International Law in 2019, the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judicial Decisions in Civil and Commercial Matters was signed. The main aim of the Convention is to create a predictable and effective regime for cross-border circulation of court decisions in civil-law cases. The instruments of the Convention are universal and fully regulate the procedure for recognition and enforcement of decisions of foreign courts, ensuring their mobility through judicial cooperation. In particular, the document indicates the grounds for both recognition and enforcement of decisions, and grounds for refusing to issue an exequatur. The Convention has the goal to ensure access to justice, is designed to reduce the costs of the parties and the risks associated with the implementation of international trade and investment activities and, as a result, to increase the attractiveness of resolving crossborder disputes by state courts.
The article analyzes the provisions of the Convention relating to one of the central issues considered in the case of recognition and enforcement of foreign court decisions — the issue of indirect international jurisdiction. The Convention sets out a list of grounds for jurisdiction, thereby creating an international obligation to recognize and enforce decisions made in accordance with these jurisdictional criteria.

Keywords: Hague Judgments Convention of 2 July 2019, indirect international jurisdiction, jurisdictional criterion (filter), recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments, exequatur.

Risk Assessment Method in Concepts and Acts of Strategic Planning of National Security and Anti-Corruption  Pdf 16

M. V. Inkina

Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, Moscow 117218, Russian Federation

Abstract. In recent years, the discourse on countering corruption in its various manifestations has increasingly focused on assessing corruption risks; however, the role and potential of this extremely important tool remain unstudied.
The purpose of the article is to study the potential of corruption risk assessment in Russia; the task is to obtain a systematic picture of the evolution, current role and existing “gaps” in the application of corruption risk assessment.
The author used a comparative analysis of relevant legal sources and documents (national security strategies, national anti-corruption plans and national anti-corruption strategies) in terms of highlighting the phenomenon of corruption, assessing its risks and methods of such assessment.
Further implementation of the analysis of corruption risks in various sectors of the Russian economy has a significant potential to identify the most corruption-dangerous industries and specific types of activities in them, where it is necessary to strengthen monitoring and control, identify corruption schemes specific to these types of activities and take measures to combat these schemes. Moreover, the potential for assessing corruption risks is currently underutilized in at least one dimension - the regional one. Although the implementation of a unified state anti-corruption policy implies a certain standardization of the legal framework, methods and approaches used in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation with those at the Federal level, this does not imply total unification, which will be more harmful than beneficial to the fight against corruption, since in this case the specific features of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation will not be taken into account.

Keywords: corruption risk assessment, corruption risk assessment methods, national security corruption risks, corruption-dangerous functions.
