Investing in Traditional Values: Russia’s National Idea of a Prosperous Large Family
5 September 2022

Strengthening the role of the family, improving the quality of life of families with children, and promoting family values are among the primary tasks not only of the government’s demographic policy, but also the shaping of a national identity. To this end, it is crucial to develop a policy to support families with children. However, practice shows that financial social support measures have a limited effect if policy measures are not based on the basic values of the family institution. Having lots of children is a traditional value shared by the Russian people that helps to preserve the nation’s identity during this period of global transformations. Breakthrough solutions are needed in the state demographic policy to revive the image of a strong, prosperous, and large family as a national idea of Russia. Favourable content should be created to form the right spiritual and family principles for the younger generation, parents need to be taught how to build effective interpersonal relationships, and tools must be developed to convey traditional family values to society. How should Russia’s demographic policy be developed in the interests of the institution of the family and traditional values? What approaches is the Far East taking to improve the quality of life of families with children and what strategies is it employing to support the institution of the family and family values? What best practices of the Far Eastern Federal District’s regions to support motherhood and large families could become a precedent for exchanging experience and replication? What effective programmes exist in the macro-region to create information and educational content for young people that aims to strengthen family values? What unique advantages of the nation’s cultural code could become a core for building a new family policy in Russia?
