Abstract: Sixty years have passed since Lenski (1954) wrote his seminal piece on the effects of status inconsistency, noting that many individuals may not maintain consistent positions along the dimensions of education, income, occupation, and ethnicity. In this paper I use the notion of status inconsistency to examine participation in the Orange Revolution in Ukraine in 2004. Status inconsistencies were more frequent in Ukraine under Soviet control, where party loyalty was used as a means of distributing social rewards rather than education. I hypothesize that despite the fall of the Soviet Union, loyalty to Moscow and the Russian regime was still used as a basis of assigning positions of authority in post-Soviet Ukraine throughout the 90s and early 2000s. Using two waves of the Ukrainian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey I hope to demonstrate that status-inconsistent individuals in Ukraine in 2002 had higher rates of participation in the Orange Revolution. In doing so I draw on the justice and legitimation literatures within social psychology and propose bridging the gap between status inconsistency and key elements of Expectations States Theory.
