Justice Public and Private: Their Incompatibility in the Russian Context

Arbitration courts and private justice are institutions of civil society that have only existed in Russia since the democratic reforms of the 1990s. The existing system of state justice provides a mechanism for the issuance and subsequent enforcement of judgments, in which court orders are not issued on behalf of arbitration tribunals.

The present study focuses on the attitudes of judges to arbitration in courts of cassation (district courts and military courts). It is in these instances that positions take shape that are later projected onto all other arbitration courts and are thus practice-forming. The activity of general jurisdiction courts are beyond the scope of this study due to the fact that they only examine an insignificant number of pertinent cases. In cases of issuing a writ of enforcement for the enforcement of decisions of arbitration courts, the number of refusals as a percentage is approximately the same ratio: in 2015 — 22%, in 2016 — 16%, in 2017 — 20% and 2018 — 31% (Khvaley 2019: 64).

Two principle mechanisms have emerged as tools in arbitration cases for Russian courts. These are «arbitrability», meaning formal admissibility of disputes by the arbitration court, and «public policy», a broad category for the protection of public and other interests, allowing judges to resort to extra-legal norms in evaluating arbitration court decisions. All this suggests that the judges have formed a special non-standard attitude to arbitration courts. This position may become the object of sociological research.

The research is performed using following concept: decisions of arbitration courts are often annulled (writs of executions for arbitration court decisions are not issued) for reasons beyond the juridical scope. On the level of arbitration courts of cassation, this process is carried out by the same judges. Judges accrue their own symbolic capital, which they try to keep and increase throughout their careers. In order not to lose this capital, the judges unconsciously allow themselves to be influenced by various factors-their own attitudes, unspoken rules of the game, external influences, and so on. The objective of this study is to specify these factors.
