The Department of Public Policy had hosted an important event, 18 May, 6 pm, on zoom, while we are having a heat wave in Moscow – about Climate Change. That’s why we have invited two Italian-British scientists from Reading University to introduce a Solarpunk. So far they have written short stories for Mamut Magazine n° 6 (Eco-logos), the independent UK publisher Bear With Me Books, and the anthologies "Glass and Gardens: Solarpunk Summers" and "Glass and Gardens:Solarpunk Winters" by WorldWeaver Press, and designed artwork for Mamut Magazine n° 6 (Eco-logos), Optopia Zine vol. 1 and Ecología Política n° 57 (Las artes y la ecología política), among other things.  Their members are invested in climate justice activism and are part of Earth Strike UK. They have recently won an EU grant to use solarpunk speculative design to help communities plan and enact their sustainable futures - if all goes well then a solarpunk reality may not be too far away.

Open online lecture "Global Policy Advisory Systems" by Dr. Leslie Pal

Open online lecture "Global Policy Advisory Systems" by Dr. Leslie Pal
The existence of “global public policy” is now widely recognized, both in formal terms (e.g., internet regulation) and as international standards and norms. Without a formal world government, however, the sources and processes of global policy-making are complex and multi-dimensional, branching out well beyond formal treaty-making bodies in the UN system. Of particularly interest in this presentation is the generation of policy advice and what we call “global policy advisory systems.” In this presentation, which is a part of our master's programme course Global Actors in Public Policy, Dr. Pal highlights some of the results of a three-year study of these systems, and current work on the role of global policy summits such as the World Economic Forum and the Doha Forum.

Student expedition to Vladimir

Student expedition to Vladimir
From the 24th to the 30th of October 2019, a group of fifteen students and three professors from the National Research University Higher School of Economics, had the opportunity to participate in an ethnological expedition to Vladimir. The reason that led the group of students to this city was the local clash of ideals – if not mentalities - related with its central museum. During six days, with the support of the members of Vladimir’s independent journal, Dovod (“Argument”), the group of students, under supervision of their professors, was responsible to interact with the local population, interviewing entities connected with the museum, social communication, and the regional educational institutions.
