23 Academics from HSE Appointed to the Government Expert Council

The new makeup of the Expert Council to the Russian government has been confirmed. It includes 366 members, 23 of whom are HSE staff.

The Expert Council is a consultative body created in 2012 to advise the Russian government and ministries on dealing with major economic and social issues. It creates a direct link between the institutions of civil society and executive power.

Today more than half of the key issues decided by the government are presented for discussion to the council’s working groups. For example, the experts were involved in devising the Russian National Children’s Strategy; bills and state programmes in healthcare, science and education, ecology, housing and public utilities, government programmes to improve transport and systems for socially oriented NGOs and social enterprise.

The Expert Council is made up of representatives of social and academic organisations with no state or municipal officials allowed.
