The overarching goal of the department is systematic development of the field of global, comparative, and transnational history as a potent tool of overcoming the limitations of national history canon, fostering interdisciplinary dialogue in the field of social sciences and humanities, and brining new public relevance to historical knowledge. The department mission includes the development of new type of historical undergraduate and graduate education in Russia and pioneering new research fields in Russian historiography in dialogue with the global historical profession.

The Congress is organised every three years by the International Economic History Association (IEHA)). This year the theme of the event was ‘Diversity in Development’, and about a thousand researchers studying economic history took part in the congress.
For the first time in its history the Congress was held in Asia, which influenced the topics of many reports. Many participants presented their research on economic reforms in China, the development of Japan in the postwar period, the transfer of technology between Europe and Asia, etc. The Congress programme was focused on research methodologies. One of the main topics at sessions and plenary meetings was the problem of new approaches in studying economic history, interdisciplinary studies, and writing textbooks on economic history.
Elena Kochetkova took part in the session ‘Revisiting the Role of Foreign Trade in Socialist Economies’, organized by Valeria Zanier, Professor at London School of Economics.
The session focused on research into foreign trade in socialist countries after World War II and the role of cooperation among different regions of the world. Speakers presented reports on Soviet oil trade, FIAT and the Soviet-Italian relations, economic policy in China during the reign of Mao Zedong, China's development in the 1970s, and others.
Kochetkova’s report was dedicated to Soviet-Finnish trade and the interests of small actors (companies, enterprises and representatives of trade organizations) in trade across the "iron curtain".
