Russian Studies

Russia in the Changing World (4 ECTS credits, 32 academic hours, HSE Moscow)
Dates: July, 12 - 30

 


This course has been designed especially for international students majoring in international relations, political science, and global economy. In contrast to international relations courses offered at other Russian universities, this course focuses on Russia’s vision of the international environment to the west and east and is built around specific issues of a political and economic nature. Many of the topics included in the course lend themselves to discussion and debate, so different points of view on various topics are offered as much as possible in the recommended literature. The course does not have any specific prerequisites, although some knowledge of Soviet History, International Relations, and Geography of Eurasia will be helpful.

Vladimir A. Kozlov

Associate Professor, PhD in Economics, Academic Supervisor of the NRU-HSE Master Programme “Population and Development”

 
This discipline is devoted to the brief history of the population and the description of the current demographic situation and processes (fertility, mortality, migration) in Russia and the whole Post Soviet territory. Also the course includes not only description but the causal relation and explanations from different theories of the observed phenomenon. In the course we will pay attention on the main social, economic and political consequences of the abovementioned processes for the certain territory of the former USSR (countries and regions within the countries) and even neighbor countries. The demographic and functional projections will be demonstrated to the students and discussed with them.
