The possible trends of authoritarian development, hybrid regimes, and for whom the presidential race is a ‘farewell tour’?
On the 23rd January the HSE Winter school 2018 of Faculty of Social Sciences has opened its doors for students from all over Russia and other countries.
Application for admission to the Master's program 'Politics. Economics. Philosophy' — still unusual for Russia, but widespread in the world — began already for the fifth time. What is the reason for the increase in the number of programs of this type in recent years? How do three different sciences get along in the same educational track, and who are expected asthe entrants of PEP program? These topics are discussed by the head of the academic program, Professor Oleg Ananyin and the teacher of the program, Professor Boris Kapustin, who has been giving lectures on the similar program at Yale University for more than 20 years.
The 8th Model ASEM took place in Myanmar and was held in conjunction with the 13th ASEM Foreign Ministers' Meeting (ASEM FMM13). Our second year student of the Master’s Programme “Politics. Economics. Philosophy” Martin Inderhaug participated this event.
PEP is a young programme. It breathes, it lives, it changes. It changes with students and for students

On November 15, international student admissions for undergraduate and Master’s programmes opened. This year, prospective students can apply to two programmes simultaneously. They’ll be able to track the application process online in their personal profile on the HSE website where they will receive notifications on the stages of their application’s review and decisions by the admissions committee. The documents for visa invitation can also be submitted there.
The application period for HSE’s Student Research Paper Competition has started. The winners will have an opportunity to take part in workshops on academic skills development, while those in state-financed studies will improve their chances of seeing their academic scholarships increased. Also, in addition in HSE students, learners from other academic institutions are eligible for this competition.
I am glad to announce that the first series of Orders of Admission have been signed (https://ma.hse.ru/prikaz2017) meaning that since August 14, 2017 fifteen applicants gained the status of students of the PEP Master’s program at the Higher School of Economics!
