The next academic year our program will meet not only the new students, but also the new colleagues. One of them - András Gál - was already teaching at HSE in 2018-2019, and now he is coming back from Budapest to St. Petersburg. We have talked to András and learnt, why he decided to continue his academic career at HSE, what he is going to teach, and why studying Political Science and the European politics is useful and interesting.
On November 7, the bar "Bachelor" hosted the second discussion of the sixth season of lectures under the topic "Populism in Europe and Russia: General Trends or Another "Special Way of Development".
The Higher School of Economics in St. Petersburg and the BA Programme in Political Science and World Politics are always happy to welcome new international scholars who come to St. Petersburg to share their knowledge and experience with our students. We have recently talked to Ekaterina Paustyan, a PhD candidate at the Central European University in Budapest, who is going to teach political economy of transition within the 4th year curriculum.
