About The Laboratory
The International Laboratory for Educational Policy Research was founded with the aim of carrying out research into the evaluation of education quality, the economics of education and educational policy though the use of modern methods and in cooperation with leading international researchers.
The laboratory’s work focuses on the study of the most important processes and pressing problems of Russian education and on the evaluation of its positive and negative aspects. It is important to understand how Russian education fits into the international context and to suggest ways of improving its quality, which will allow us to provide analytical support for the Russian government.
There are different groups of experts at the HSE involved in the study of educational strategies as well as the economics and sociology of education. The laboratory aims to coordinate the efforts of these groups and improve the quality of their research with the assistance of leading foreign experts in education.
The work of the international laboratory will help carry out fundamental research (including interdisciplinary) on the international level of quality. This will help create a large center for research into the economic and sociological problems of education based at the HSE.
