Research Activity

Since the establishment in 2002 Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs has prioritized research programs as a pivotal activity.

Three main research units of the Faculty are Centre for Comprehensive European and International Studies, Institute of Trade Policy and International Laboratory on World Order Studies and the New Regionalism. They provide wide range of research programs that are well known among Russian public agencies and private companies.

Among clients of the laboratories are Government of Russian Federation, Ministry of the development of the Far East, Security Council, Eurasian Economic Commission, Eurasian Development Bank as well as private companies like “Volga-Dnepr”, NOVATEK, NGJ “Splav”, Roseximbank etc.

Russian partners of the Faculty are represented by Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, Valdai Discussion Club, “Russia in Global Affairs” Journal, Russian International Affairs Council, The Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund. On international level the Faculty develops partnership network with leading US, European and Asian universities and research centers that is constantly replenished with new participants and projects.

Annually some research projects of the School are generously supported by Russian Research Foundation as well as Basic research program of NRU HSE. Since 2014, the Faculty has also launched the Program of individual research grants for faculty members.

Main research areas

Major educational tracks of the Faculty, i.e. World Economy, International Relations, Oriental Studies and International Regional Studies remain simultaneously the main tracks of the research work.

Faculty members with major in World Economy conduct research activities of key socio-economic and climate problems, study the major issues of global governance, international trade, integration processes of EAEU, APR and the EU.

Exploring opportunities for international cooperation to develop Siberia and the Far East of Russia is the particular priority research area over the past 8 years. Key results of this project have been used to justify one of the key Russian foreign policy initiatives of recent years – “Turn to the East” policy.

Research works on international relations focus on the study of Russia's cooperation with Asian countries (China, Japan, Republic of Korea, ASEAN, etc.), Eurasian integration, US-Russia relations and European studies.

One of the last research tracks, launched in 2015, is geo-economics of sanctions and international aid policy. Despite a short period since the beginning of the project, its first results have been already highly appreciated by a number of Russian state agencies.

The School of Asian Studies includes Scientific and Educational Section of Korean Studies and conducts three to some extent unique research projects: Oriental Manuscript, Transcultural Communication in Asia and The East-West Dialogue: Cultural, Religious and Social Dimension.

The School of International Regional Studies is a research and educational centre seeking to revive international regional studies as an academic discipline in Russia. The department’s world-class professors train the next generation of regional studies specialists while developing an increasingly prestigious research school.

The main body, responsible for coordination and funding of Faculty research, is Science Commission. On website you can find all necessary information about academic development support for faculty members and students, travel grants, support for advanced training, conferences and research grants.
