Master's Programme in Comparative Politics of Eurasia
Comparative Politics of Eurasia
This programme was created in response to the growing strategic importance of the wider Eurasian region. The programme curriculum is built around core conceptual training in comparative political science and comprehensive empirical training in contemporary methods of social science research. The programme’s location in St. Petersburg, with its extraordinary cultural and historical heritage, will provide students with unique opportunities for diving into the Russian culture, understanding history, and acquiring the Russian language.
On 3 March at 23:59 Moscow time, the deadline for applications from students wishing to continue their studies in the International double degree programme will expire. The partner of the “Comparative Politics of Eurasia” is the University of Trento. Every year, some of the best second-year students get the opportunity to study in Trento and, if they successfully defend their MA thesis and pass all the exams, they receive two diplomas: one from HSE Saint-Petersburg and the other from the University of Trento. Konstantin Koryakin, a second-year student on the Comparative Politics of Eurasia program and winner of last year’s competiotion, tells us how to prepare a strong portfolio and pass the qualifying stage of the competition.
Central Asian Survey, published by Taylor & Francis, is the leading international peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary journal concerned with the history, politics, cultures, religions and economies of Central Asia and the Caucasus. Oleg Korneev, Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science and International Affairs, HSE University-St Petersburg, co-edited the special issue ‘EU–Central Asian Interactions: Perceptions, Interests and Practices’ together with his colleagues Rick Fawn (University of St Andrews) and Karolina Kluczewska (University of Ghent).
The second-year students of the Comparative Politics of Eurasia programme have just defended their final theses, some of which can already be published as policy papers and academic papers, while others — immediately after a small revision. We ask Daniele Straquadanio, who is about to receive his diploma, to tell us what influences the effectiveness of international pressure on countries that violate human rights.
