Participation and access in higher education in Russia: continuity and change of a positional advantage

P. 190-204.

The chapter addresses the continuities of the factors affecting inequalities in higher education, in association with the dynamics of the social context over last decades (the reforms in higher education and transformation in the society and labor market). Drawing on a number of conceptual approaches (Hirsch 1977, Collins 1972, Marginson 1997), the paper analyzes the limitations of equity of opportunity in a high participation higher education system. It uses data from national student surveys to provide evidence on equality of opportunity and consider it in a comparative perspective.
