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.”
The new issue focuses on international students, their importance for higher educational institutions and the change they bring.
It is only about a month untill the Russian Summer School on Institutional Analysis 2017 starts. We are excited to share the details with you.
Funding through the European programme Erasmus+ will be allocated to the development of a Master’s programme in clinical linguistics, the organization of a summer school on institutional analysis, and the creation of Russia's first courses on education law.
From July 2 – 7, 2016, the 10th Russian Summer School on Institutional Analysis (RSSIA) took place just outside of Moscow. This event traditionally attracts experts in various areas of institutional research, as well as young researchers, for whom the School is a chance to work on projects under the supervision of leading scholars.
