Doctoral School of Political Science

Our Doctoral School was founded as an essential tool to build and unite a school of political science at HSE. It is intended to help doctoral students become part of this school and to understand the best practices and examples of research from global science that their instructors strive to master and develop at our university. All together, we can and should create not only the country’s best academic community of political scientists, but a scholarly tradition that would occupy a position of authority globally.
