The Center for Institutional Studies (CInSt) was established in 2010 with the goal of creation of a scientific center in the field of institutional economics as a part of an international cooperation network, and promoting international standards of research. We provide conditions and incentives for young and talented university graduates to participate in both scientific and teaching activities at the HSE. Our professional interests are focused on institutional analysis of different markets and sectors of the economy, among them are education, procurement, banking, non-profit organizations.
In 2017, Higher School of Economics turns 25. For a university, this is a very young age, so we will celebrate this milestone in the form of an “anti-anniversary”: we give out presents instead of receiving them, we laugh at ourselves, contemplate about the challenges we face and about how to become even better. This special issue of Higher Education in Russia and Beyond, which discusses the development of our university, is published as part of this “anti-anniversary year.”
In deciding to join HSE as a post-doc fellow in the Center for Institutional Studies), François Guillemin sought to combine a sense of adventure with a post-doctoral experience that would allow him to continue his research in the field of banking regulation. HSE ended up on the top of his list, and he accepted an offer to start this September.
Our researchers visited the 30th Annual Consortium of Higher Education Researchers (CHER) conference that took place in Jyväskylä (Finland) this year.
The new issue focuses on international students, their importance for higher educational institutions and the change they bring.
