From the 24th to the 30th of October 2019, a group of fifteen students and three professors from the National Research University Higher School of Economics, had the opportunity to participate in an ethnological expedition to Vladimir. The reason that led the group of students to this city was the local clash of ideals – if not mentalities - related with its central museum. During six days, with the support of the members of Vladimir’s independent journal, Dovod (“Argument”), the group of students, under supervision of their professors, was responsible to interact with the local population, interviewing entities connected with the museum, social communication, and the regional educational institutions.
We are glad to congratulate our graduates with succesful defenses of their master's theses and the culmination of a learning marathon that each student has worked hard to complete. The Department of Public Policy’s international Master’s programme wish them good luck and great succes in their further careers.
