The start of a new academic year is an excellent time to plan the next steps in your academic career. On September 1, HSE University announced the start of its annual Student Research Paper Competition (SRPC-2022). Participation is open to students of Russian and international universities and to 2022 graduates. Last year, a total of 2,196 papers were submitted to the SRPC, of which 435 were from external participants.
On Monday February 21st at 14:00 a photo exhibition, dedicated to the 50th anniversary of «Doctors Without Borders», will open at HSE. This has been possible thanks to the fact that one of our graduates from the master's program «Political Analysis and Public Policy» works at «Doctors Without Borders». This allows our department to maintain cooperation on joint activities, as well as to involve students in project work on the basis of our organizations.
The seminar devoted to Gender Issues in Humanitarian Actions organized by OxFam will take place November 19. The speaker is Edith Muluhya, Global Gender Adviser (Oxfam Global Humanitarian Team), lecture on Gender Issues. Also among the participants are students of “Population and Development” and “Political Analysis and Public Policy” programmes.
The existence of “global public policy” is now widely recognized, both in formal terms (e.g., internet regulation) and as international standards and norms. Without a formal world government, however, the sources and processes of global policy-making are complex and multi-dimensional, branching out well beyond formal treaty-making bodies in the UN system. Of particularly interest in this presentation is the generation of policy advice and what we call “global policy advisory systems.” In this presentation, which is a part of our master's programme course Global Actors in Public Policy, Dr. Pal highlights some of the results of a three-year study of these systems, and current work on the role of global policy summits such as the World Economic Forum and the Doha Forum.
