Who are political elites in a modern, autocratizing authoritarian regime? What role do officials' appointment schemes or the use of authoritarian elections play in determining elites' quality, behavior, and incentives? And finally, what factor does an autocrat need to consider when deciding how to manage the elite officials below him or her? These are some of the questions co-authors and I tackle in a series of papers on authoritarian elites in Russia and other post-Soviet contexts.
