Universities as Actors of Inclusive Development in Russia

P. 283-309.

Social inclusion and inclusive innovation practices are being implemented in university strategies and routines in various ways considering historical, cultural, socio-economic and other factors. This chapter deals with the current state of the universities’ inclusive function in Russia, its origins and prospects. It represents the inclusive activity as an outcome of the national and local top-down policies combined with universities’ bottom-up initiatives. To clarify the path dependency it also describes respective particularities of the Russian higher education system vis-à-vis internationally recognised concepts and models. Finally, a study of particular cases provides an evidence for a preliminary classification of university’s practices and tools for social inclusion and inclusive innovation. In addition to practical cases the chapter provides relevant statistical data and structured legislation review.
