The modernisation of Public Administrations in the European Union and in the Russian Federation: University International Relations Offices Case

The research project is conducted by Lola Rouze, a graduate student of University Lyon 3 Jean Moulin and aims to compare the modernisation level of the Universities’ International Relations Offices (IROs) situated in Russia and the European Union. The analysis is based on Max Weber’s definition of modernity and involves a questionnaire survey for the civil servants working in Russian and European IROs, as well as their users. The author’s research stay in St. Petersburg was supported by the CGES as an award for winning the Annual Russian-European Research Paper Competition held at the CGES of St. Petersburg University in November of 2018.
