Abstract

A distinctive feature of the Soviet social system was its orientation toward the maximum possible involvement of the popular masses in the state management. This orientation manifested itself in the community courts, which were created immediately after the establishment of the Soviet power and survived until the Soviet system’s decline. The article shows the creation and development of the community courts network in Siberia and their use as an instrument to influence the behavior and consciousness of Soviet citizens based on archival documents and materials published during the period under investigation.
