Abstract

This article presents a discussion of the status of class analysis in modern Ukrainian sociology. The author highlights the features of institutionalization of any given discipline in three spheres (theoretical, empirical and organizational). Using them, she analyzes the history of the study of social class in the post-Soviet period and make conclusions about the institutionalization of class analysis in sociology. In addition, the author records some trends in its modern development: the recognition of the relevance of class analysis in explaining structural innovations; the orientation in the theoretical, empirical and organizational spheres towards international (rather than post-Soviet) standards; the use of a combination of both Western/global and national-specific conceptualizations, methodologies and tools in the research practice; the implementation of alternative approaches to the class and at the same time a striving for a standard/uniform model of class definition. In conclusion, the author discusses the progress in the development of Ukrainian class analysis and the problems that accompany it.

Keywords: class analysis, Ukraine, the institutionalization of science

Abstract

This article proposes a classification of research areas of contemporary class analysis, which consists of six thematic clusters: the study of the genesis of social classes; their nature; distribution; class effects; subjective aspects; and of class conflicts and actions. The description of each cluster contains main research questions, a list of key terms and concepts, as well as the names and publications of class analysts that represent a given thematic area. Within each of the selected clusters, the author identified three trends of understanding modern class inequalities, divisions and conflicts: conservative (recognition of the status quo of the classes as the basis of macro-social structure, as well as the relevance of the prevailing class concepts); revisionist (strategies of renewing class analysis while leaving the primacy of class structure in the matrix of social stratification); and nihilistic (recognition of the shift from class inequalities and structures of the industrial era to the complex/classless inequality of post-industrial era and a call to accept the inevitability of the progressive reduction of the relevance of class analysis).

Keywords: social class, class analysis, thematic clusters of class analysis

Abstract
The debates between class analysts in the past two decades have revealed the main problems of mapping the class structure and identified possible prospects for improving the appropriate methodologies and techniques. This article summarizes the results of the discussion about the construction and the use of empirical class schemes and proposes an original scheme/matrix of class position identification on the basis of three criteria. The macro-classes (employees and owners/employers) are allocated according to their relation to property of the means of production. Meso-classes are formed according to horizontals and verticals of each of these matrices. These are the positions allocated in the matrix of the owners according to the level of the entrepreneurial activity and the sector-industry specialization. In the matrix of employees the position allocation is based on the skill levels and the sector-industry specialization of their occupation. Micro-classes are the positions formed at the intersection of the criteria of meso-classes. The article describes the empirical operationalization of the class positions matrix and different ways of their aggregation. The hypotheses for the validation of the proposed matrix are formulated.
Keywords: class, class mapping, empirical class schemes, matrix of class positions, owners, employees

Abstract

The article discusses the varieties of meaning of the term “class” and class concepts in modern sociology. In the past two decades we have accumulated such a diverse range of interpretations of this subject that the researchers of class have become increasingly aware of the need to summarize and order them to facilitate the discussion of the class-related issues. The article provides an overview of several generalizing classifications of various meanings of the term “class” and class concepts, created between 2000 and 2013 by authoritative analysts in this field (Aage Sørensen, Goran Therborn, Erik Olin Wright, Mike Savage). It is concluded that there is no trend towards the universal concept of class. On the contrary, multiform conceptualizations of class continue to coexist within the contemporary class analysis.

Abstract

This article studies the construction of the class of small proprietors in Ukraine in the period of post-Soviet transformation (1991–2012 years). As suggested by the author, the conceptualization of this class is differentiated on the basis of two criteria: 1) the level of entrepreneurial activity — to small employers and the self-employed, 2) sectorial specialization – by employment in four sectors of economy (agricultural, industrial, service and post-industrial ones). The intersection of these criteria forms the matrix of 16 class positions. The description of the constitution of each class of small proprietors includes an analysis of their institutional environment and the actual practices of their reproduction, as well as their quantitative dynamics and morphological structure during the studied period.

Keywords: constitution of a social class, a class of small proprietors, small employers, self employed, sector of economy.

Abstract

This article analyzes the features of the constitution / reproduction of the class of small proprietors in Ukraine during the 20th century. Stolypin reform created favorable institutional conditions for the constitution of the class of petty bourgeoisie. In the Soviet era, the doctrine of the destruction of private property and exploitative relations led to the deconstitution of this class. The liquidation of private property has been implemented through five successive reforms: War Communism, the New Economic Policy (NEP), mass collectivization, socialization of property, and the achievement of social homogeneity. The reconstitutution of the class of small proprietors was linked to the creation of the institutional prerequisites for the restoration and the legitimation of private property during the times of Perestroika and the post-Soviet transformations. A detailed presentation of the three cases within the process of constitution of this class in the mentioned historical periods includes an analysis of the institutional conditions for the reproduction of the class, of its socio-economic status, of its quantative and structural characteristics.

Keywords: constitution of a social class, a class of small proprietors, individual peasants, the kulaks, nepmen, cooperative and non-cooperative artisans, collective farmers, artel members, speculators, parasites of society, cooperators.

Abstract

The article presents the results of an empirical study of class identities according to two research traditions. The analysis of data from the 2009 International Social Survey Programme was carried out within the tradition of studying the relationship between class positions and class identities. It allowed to state that the majority of the population of Ukraine, as well as of the number of post-socialist and capitalist countries has an adequate awareness of their class position. In particular, about two-thirds of the working and middle classes identify themselves with their corresponding class position. The correlation between the objective and subjective class is quite strong in all the countries under comparison (and it is higher in post – Soviet Ukraine than in the developed capitalist societies). Within the tradition of typological analysis, typologies of class identities of the middle and working classes were designed based on in-depth interviews. Consequently, the results of typological analysis allowed to specify the conclusions drawn on the basis of the mass survey data.

Keywords: class identity, class position, relationship of class position and class identity

Abstract

The aim of the study is to compare the level of perceptions of class conflict in post-socialist and developed Western societies. The data of different waves of the project to study social inequalities, implemented within the International Social Survey Program (ISSP), form the empirical base of this study. The results show, firstly, that the perception of different types of conflict in Ukraine, post-socialist and Western countries are quite similar (ranging between strong and not very strong). The conflict between the people at the top of society and the people at the bottom is seen as the most acute, while the conflict between the working and the middle classes is deemed the least important. Secondly, in the 1990s in the West there was a trend towards the weakening of the perception of the conflicts and in the 2000s the level stayed the same; at the post-Socialist space worsening assessment of conflicts in the post-reform period changed to the trend of the perception of social consensus. Thirdly, in all of the compared countries class positions influence the perception of conflict in society only to a small extent.

Keywords: types of class conflict, perceptions of class conflict, class position
