Modern Approaches to the "Regionalization" of Federal Policy in Russian Higher Education

Significant differentiation and heterogeneity of Russian regional higher education systems requires thoughtful federal policy taking into account peculiarities and unique features of the regional socio-economic situations. The research presented in the paper had its key goal in the elaboration of the rationale and basis for the “regionalization” of public policy in Russian higher education. Different approaches to the development of regional higher education systems in Russia are explored in the paper. The analysis is based on the presupposition that the governance of higher education system should take into account regional socio-economic development priorities. The typology of regional higher education systems in Russia is presented in the paper. The consideration of the types in the context of the regional socio-economic situations allowed authors to offer public policy mechanisms for the development of regional higher education systems in the context of compliance with the objectives of regional development.
