Valdai Discussion Club

Elite Ideology, Mass Protests, and Russia's Democratic Prospects

The mass protests in 2011 and 2012 have caused heated debates about the trajectory of Russian politics. Some experts believe that this political awakening portends an early end to Putin's rule, while others predict a crackdown on the opposition and perhaps even mass repressions.

‘Conducting Comparative Research Requires One to Leave a Comfortable Environment’

Students of the international Master’s programme in Comparative Social Research, which opened in 2014, spent their first semester studying at the Moscow campus of the Higher School of Economics; the second semester was spent in St. Petersburg. Another six months will be devoted to study abroad. Mobility in the educational process is an important principle of the programme that allows future sociologists to better understand social reality. The English-language programme turned out to of interest not only to Russian students, but also to graduates of prestigious foreign universities.
