Talking Frankly About KPI

It is just recently that HSE Faculty of Social Sciences has been — without any festivities — recognized as the best according to KPI-2016 evaluation and the only one “exceeding expectations” (a year earlier we were just “matching expectations”). Moreover, we have for the first time been ranked among the top-100 according to QS Ranking by Subject in Sociology, and in Politics & International Studies. All of this is the achievement of our academic staff and has already brought us additional resources, which can be used for the faculty’s further development. And yet, this is also a good reason to think about the pros and cons of the entire KPI system. We bring to your attention the article of the Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Andrew Melville, published in the autumn issue of HERB (Higher Education in Russian and Beyond) journal.

Following her lecture, she spoke with the HSE News Service about some of the key findings in her research on social movements, including as they relate to the post-Soviet space.
