Right to Work: Constitutional and International Aspects  Pdf 16


head of the Department of labour and social security legislation of the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation, doctor of legal sciences
34, Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya st., Moscow, Russia, 117218

The article deals with the legal nature of the right to work as one of the most important human rights. Different points of view expressed in the legal literature on the concept and content of the right to work are analyzed. The author does not share the view in the legal literature that the right to work under the current Constitution does not have an independent meaning, but is an element of freedom of work or it can be considered only in a narrow sense, i.e. as the right to labor protection. In the author’s opinion, on the contrary, freedom of work is included in the content of the right to work. Freedom of work is manifested in the potential of the citizen’s choice of the sphere of application of their labor abilities. The right to work implies not only the possibility for a citizen to choose the sphere of applying his or her labour abilities, but also the assistance of the state in realizing this possibility. Analyzing various points of view of representatives of labor law on the issue under consideration, as well as Russian and international law, the author concludes that the Russian Constitution enshrines the right to work as such in the meaning that is given to it by international acts. As for the formula of the Constitution of the Russian Federation: “the right to work in conditions that meet the requirements of safety and hygiene”, it does not in any way indicate the absence of the right to work. On the contrary, this wording of the Constitution establishes a qualitatively new content of the right to work, i.e. not just the right to work, but the right to work in conditions that meet safety and hygiene requirements. In other words, the current Russian Constitution in a certain way expands the content of the right to work, adding a new element — the right to working conditions that meet the requirements of safety and hygiene.

Keywords: the right to work, freedom of work, Constitution, international norms, conditions of safety and hygiene, the content of the right to work.

34, Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya st., Moscow, Russia, 117218

The development in the environmental sphere of constitutional values and norms passed through several stages; proposals on the legalization of ecological functions of the state, the recognition of the state environmental are regularly made. Twenty-fifth anniversary of the Constitution drew attention to the efficiency of concretization of the regulation in the field of ecology; the most relevant are the purposes of ensuring greening and justice of the legislation, combining ecology with economy through strategic planning. The call of constitutional preamble to honor the memory of ancestors who conveyed to us the faith in the justice needs practical interpretation through the use and protection of natural resources in the interests of the majority of citizens on a fair basis, to guarantee the common use of waters, forests; favourable natural environment is the basis of health, labor, rest and human life, significant factor in his social security; citizens should have opportunities of discussion, adoption, implementation of environmental decisions, the implementation of public environmental control, public hearings. The relationship of economy and ecology occurs in rivalry, the law is intended to balance economic and environmental interests, overcoming their contradictions, which are determined by the freedom of economic activity, recognition of land and forest plots, ponds, animals, common and extracted commercial minerals of civil turnover, on the one hand, and the need for substantial funding for the environmental protection on the other. The strategy of economic security of the Russian Federation to the main challenges and threats relates the establishment of redundant requirements in the field of environmental security, the rising costs of meeting environmental standards of production and consumption. In the natural sphere, in order to overcome the confrontation between the economy and the environment, it is advisable to restore planning in a competitive environment, where mankind is able to predict, shape the future based on environmental, demographic, social, economic, political forecasts, use of statistical data, economic evaluation of natural and anthropogenic objects, whereby use of the constitutional environmental potential increases.

Keywords: the Constitution of Russia, ecologization, justice.

judge of the Tyumen Regional Court, doctor of legal sciences, professor
1, 8 Marta st., Tyumen, Russia, 625038

Human rights are one of the basic values of the Constitution of the Russian Federation. As follows from its preamble, the assertion of human rights and freedoms is the first among the goals for which the Russian people adopted its Basic Law in 1993. The purpose of the study is to analyze the implementation of the two main tasks of criminal justice: protecting the rights and legitimate interests of individuals and organizations that have suffered from crimes and protecting the individual from unlawful and unreasonable accusation, condemnation, restriction of her rights and freedoms in the context of the balance of constitutional values. The author reviewed modern literature on this issue, analyzed the legal positions of the Constitutional and Supreme Courts of the Russian Federation, the European Court of Human Rights, made generalizations, including on the basis of his own experience in the appellate instance of the Tyumen Regional Court. In the author’s opinion, the Constitution of the Russian Federation in itself has a regulatory capacity, the use of which will make it possible to significantly reduce the number of judicial errors entailing the violation of human rights in criminal proceedings. It points to the need to overcome the stereotype that the legal positions of the Constitutional Court of Russia are acts of a recommendatory nature. In the work, there is a close relationship between the constitutional and moral and ethical foundations of criminal proceedings, which should determine the decisions and actions of the judge, investigator, prosecutor, lawyer. Proposals are being made to improve the control powers of the court during the preliminary investigation.

Keywords: Constitution, criminal justice, human rights, justice, judicial errors.

The Issues of Public Order and Characterization in Regulation of Family Relations Involving a Foreign Element  Pdf 16


professor at the Department of private international law of the Kutafin Moscow State Law University, doctor of legal sciences, professor
9, Sadovaya-Kudrinskaya st., Moscow, Russia, 123995

The author researches the issues of public policy rules application to family relations involving a foreign element, including the issues of refuse in recognition of polygamy marriages, same-sex “marriages” and “civil partnerships” as well as refuse in recognition of discriminatory conditions related to legal capacity of the persons entering into marriage, or divorcing spouses. These issues are closely related to the concept of characterization in private international law which is not very developed in the Russian doctrine. The purpose of this article is the analysis of the provisions of Russian and foreign laws regarding the public policy rules application in considering the family law disputes that involve a foreign element. Primarily, this article focuses on the legal effect of polygamous marriages and same-sex unions in Russia. The research is based on comparative method. The author provides examples from a foreign case law regarding application by the courts of public order clauses, as well as characterization rules
application in solving the family law disputes involving the foreign element. The author comes to the conclusions that foreign courts usually do not take into account the various “extraordinary” restrictions for marriage (marital unfaithfulness, mourning time, etc.) on the basis of their contradiction to the national public order, and the number of countries’ case law does not consider such restrictions as relative to the marital capacity. Non-recognition of polygamous and same-sex marriages’ legal consequences in Russia is based on the interpreting the definition of marriage as a “union of a woman and a man” (Article 1 of the Russian Family Code). The “same-sex marriages” also shouldn’t be recognized in Russia by virtue of characterization rules (i. e. rules of the legal concepts’ interpretation contained in the conflict of laws rules), which (characterization) is carried out in accordance with the Russian law. The characterization of such notions as “same-sex partnerships” or “unions” must be carried out under respective foreign law due to the absence of these concepts in the Russian family law. Consequently, these notions have legal characteristics under the relevant foreign law, however the legal consequences under Russian laws (family, hereditary, housing, etc.) may not be applied to such same-sex “marriages” (“unions”, “partnerships”). Unlike same-sex marriages in solving the issues of polygamous marriages (awarding alimony, distributing of inheritance property, resolving the disputes over children etc.) the Russian courts may follow the relevant foreign law.

Keywords: marriage, same-sex marriage, civil partnership for same-sex couples, characterization, conflict of law rule, public order, applicable law, foreign law.

The True Purpose of Criminal Punishment and the Criteria for Its Attainability  Pdf 16


professor of the Department of criminal law and procedure of Yugorsk State University, doctor of legal sciences, associate professor
16, Chekhov st., Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia, 628012

The purposes of punishment were officially fixed in the domestic criminal legislation in the beginning of the last century. However, due to the high degree of the description’s abstractness, none of them has until now received universal approval in the domestic criminal law doctrine. At the same time, the official goal of punishment is a reflection of the current criminal policy. It allows determination of the law enforcement activities’ effectiveness and identification of shortcomings in normative regulation both in the field of criminal law relations and in crime prevention in general. Therefore, in order to formulate the actual goal of criminal punishment, it is necessary to determine the set of criteria for the real attainability of the punishment types provided for by criminal law. This study assumes the formulation of criminal punishment’s actual purpose, which can be achieved as a result of established criminal-legal prohibition. To achieve this goal, it is necessary, firstly, to formulate the criteria for the attainability of the objectives of criminal punishment, and, secondly, to evaluate all the purposes of criminal punishment proposed by modern research and the current legislation for compliance with the criteria. The achievement of the research’s declared results is provided by the use of the dialectical method of scientific cognition, as well as by a number of other private scientific methods: classification, generalization, analysis, induction and deduction. As a result of the conducted research, it was concluded that none of the officially stated goals of criminal punishment can be achieved as a result of the establishment of a criminal-legal prohibition and the realization of responsibility for its violation. To formulate the actual goal of criminal punishment, two criteria for its attainability are defined: formal and material. The formal criterion is to affirm that the purpose of criminal punishment should be achieved as a result of the implementation of criminal law norms only. The material criterion can be summarized by saying that the purpose of criminal punishment is the result that is to be fixed and recorded as being done in real life. Taking into account the content of the identified attainability criteria, it is concluded that the only purpose of criminal punishment is to determine the nature and degree of the public danger of a specific criminal assault.

Keywords: purposes of criminal punishment, restoration of social justice, correction of convict, prevention of new crimes’ commission, the criteria for attainability of the purposes of punishment.

34, Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya st., Moscow, Russia, 117218

In the global digitalization conditions within all spheres of activity in most countries of the world and the rapid penetration of information systems and information technologies into public finance, a transformation of budget relations takes place, requiring the search for the most optimal regulation forms. The article traces the way how the introduction and implementation of information systems and technologies forms are formalized from the the origin of the general regulation to the modern special one in the public finance sphere. The modern architecture of information systems involved in public finance is defined, their common advantages such as operativity (speed), comparability of data, economy, convenience, transparency, continuity, reliability, elimination of duplication are analyzed). It is also noted that information systems and technologies, by deflecting through the prism of public finance, acquire specific shades and special purpose, due to the budget’s strategic role for the state. The architecture of information systems and information technologies in the sphere of public finance is considered. Particular attention is paid to the characterization of the already implemented information systems — PFM Public Finance Management “Electronic Budget” and PFM on state and municipal installments, their role and importance for both the budgetary activities themselves and for ensuring the financial security of the state. Summing up, the author emphasizes that the legal registration of the “digital budget” is in the stage of active development and occurs within the boundaries of the general digitalization of the state activity spheres, taking into account the specifics, relevant to the budgetary activity.

Keywords: information systems, information technologies, public finance, legal forms, electronic budget, digital budget, budget portal, transparency, openness, financial stability, financial safety.

Mediation in Collective Labor Disputes: Limitations and Opportunities (Taking into Account Foreign Experience)  Pdf 16


associate professor of the Department of civil law and procedure of the Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod
23, Gagarin ave., Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, 603950

The opportunities of using mediation to settle collective labor disputes in Russia are of research interest. On the one hand, it is due to the need to effectively regulate the collective labor disputes arising at different levels of social partnership, on the other hand, due to the existing deviation between Russian legislation and European and global practice. The aim of the research is to identify and study the shortcomings of the current Russian legislation in the field of regulation of collective labor disputes in order to find ways to eliminate existing shortcomings and formulate proposals for improving the legislation. On the basis of formal-logical and comparative-legal methods, the article analyzes the Russian legislation in this area, as well as the experience of legal regulation and the practice of mediation in collective labor disputes abroad. Geographically, the scope of the study covers mainly Europe, North America and China. Based on the results of the analysis of current situation, the author presents the advantages that the use of mediation will give in the settlement of collective labor disputes, and identifies ways to eliminate the existing obstacles. In conclusion, the author concludes that it is necessary to amend the Labor Code of the Russian Federation and the Federal Law “On alternative dispute resolution procedure with the participation of a mediator (mediation procedure)”, which remove excessive restrictions established by this law in respect of the application of mediation to social partnership relations in the labor sphere. It seems reasonable to use mediation as a method of alternative dispute resolution in case of conflicts between employers (associations of employers) and labor unions. This can have a positive impact both on the development of social partnership relations in the Russian Federation and on legal regulation in the sphere of labor in general.

Keywords: mediation, mediator, alternative dispute resolution, collective labor disputes, labor legislation, social partnership.

research fellow of the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation
34, Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya st., Moscow, Russia, 117218

The article discusses the importance of the maternity capital program in the system of measures to stabilize the demographic situation in the Russian Federation. The main legal instruments of influence on population reproduction — legal incentives and restrictions-are discussed. The author analyzes the legislation of the Soviet period on increasing the birth rate and the effectiveness of the legal instruments used to reproduce the population in the XX century and the possibility of application in modern Russia. The author focuses on changing the law on maternity capital to extend the forms of its use, to improve the targeting, to facilitate its enforcement. Also the author mentions the legal regulation of the maternity capital in regions and its impact on increasing the birth rate within the territories of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. The unity and differences of the approaches in the regional regulations of the parent capital of constituent entities of the Russian Federation were analyzed too. The reasons for the differences are the heterogeneity of the socio-economic situation of individual territories within one state, which leads to a difference, sometimes significant, in the socio-economic status of individual families with children. The author analyzes legislative initiatives to identify trends in the development of forms of stabilization of the demographic situation in the Russian Federation. The author proposes the expansion of social measures that have a positive impact on the population of the country: the development of the infrastructure of certified babysitters and tutors; further development of the system of pre-school education, including the real possibility of caring for children up to one year; expanding the possibilities of combining parents’ work activities and the function of childrearing; increasing the amount of material state assistance for each subsequent child, etc.

Keywords: demographic policy, maternity capital, birth rate, subject of the Russian Federation.

Issues of Legal Regulation of Mining Land Reclamation  Pdf 16


postgraduate of the Department of natural resources legislation of the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation
34, Bolshaya Cheremushkinskaya st., Moscow, Russia, 117218

Legal regulation of relations in the sphere of land reclamation, damaged by subsoil use, is carried out by the norms of environmental, land and subsoil legislation, which have significant contradictions in terms of the design and conduct of land reclamation. This fact complicates the practice of law enforcement. To resolve this problem, it is necessary to analyze the theoretical basis. Many researchers of the legal regulation of land reclamation consider only the environmental function of this process, but the author has a different vision of the goals and objectives of this activity. The aim of the study is to determine the place of the legal mechanism of land reclamation, damaged by subsoil use, in the system of legal regulation of environmental protection and environmental management, to identify the main objectives of these activities, as well as ways to improve this kind of legislation. Achieving this goal is carried out by methods of theoretical research, including analysis of the Russian legislation in the field of land reclamation, scientific works, analytical materials related to the field of research, as well as by comparison of the environmental, land and subsoil legislation, both current and past. Proposals to improve the legal regulation in the field under consideration and to adopt a new normative legal act are based on the results achieved, also, by methods of induction and deduction, abstract modeling. The author concludes that the current legal regulation of the design and remediation of lands damaged by subsoil use needs significant processing, in which it is necessary to take into account the duality of this process, which consists in combining environmental and natural resource objectives of the activity under consideration.

Keywords: reclamation of disturbed lands, project of land reclamation, technical project of development of mineral deposits, mining land reclamation.

Anti-Corruption Education of the Younger Generation as the Main Means of Prevention of Corruption  Pdf 16


professor at the Department of criminal law disciplines of the Academy of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, doctor of legal sciences, associate professor
10, Novaya Basmannaya st., Moscow, Russia, 107078

Taking into account the ambiguous social nature of corruption, which in the individual and in the mass public consciousness is not always perceived as a negative phenomenon, as well as taking into account the long incubation period of its aging, the article substantiates the need to use anti-corruption education as the main means of combating corruption. In the current period, the education in our country is almost out of the proper legal regulation: the organizational and legal bases of education of children and youth, including anti-corruption, are fragmented and their legal provisions are not developed. In CIS there is a Model law on the education of children and youth, but there is no a separate law in Russia. Existing official documents related to the development of legal literacy and legal awareness, education of the younger generation pay close attention to the prevention of extremism, missing the need for early warning of corruption, instilling anti-corruption immunity. The article emphasizes the need for staffing of educational institutions by specialists, who can use advanced teaching methods and educational preventive anti-corruption courses; the need for certification of teaching staff for knowledge of the current anti-corruption legislation and practice of its application. Among the main theoretical, methodological and applied problems of ensuring the anti-corruption education of the younger generation is the correction of the developed and applied methodological recommendations on the formation of anti-corruption outlook. The analysis of the content of some of them reveals negative examples of teaching pseudo history in school and, as a consequence, a distorted view of corruption, its evolution in our country. The draft program on anti-corruption education of students of educational organizations for 2018—2019 formulates a system of measures related to the education of young people and requires the mobilization of the entire state apparatus, the system of school and higher education, civil society institutions.

Keywords: prevention of corruption, anti-corruption education, monitoring of anti-corruption legislation, certification of teaching staff, the ideology of the state anti-corruption policy, guidelines and educational programs for the formation of anti-corruption Outlook, especially the methodology of training.
