The aim of this essay is to investigate what sort of political regimes that have been taking form in Russia and Turkey during the 21st century. Hence, it studies the development that has been taking place in both countries during the last ten years. This essay is doing so by using a comparative approach. The theoretical frame of the essay is inspired by Silander’s (2012) dimensions for a democratic regime. The dimensions are leadership, political parties and civil society. Furthermore, it dives into deeper studies about the political system of each country. The study demonstrates that neither Russia nor Turkey are able to meet the standards of a democracy as of today. Furthermore, it shows that Russia falls within the frame of an authoritarian regime. Turkey is listed as ”partly free” according to this study, hence it is a hybrid regime with limitations.
