Special issues of the journal “Public Administration Issues” traditionally include articles prepared by researchers from different countries and regions. Nevertheless, there is a steady trend of representation: first of all, the journal is attractive to researchers from Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, South America and Africa. The presence of authors from the BRICS countries in the issues of the journal is increasing, which indicates the established international affi liation of the journal. The journal is interesting because it highlights current problems of public administration in these vast regions, problems that often remain on the periphery of the leading Anglo-Saxon journals, or are considered by them from the standpoint of established governance practices in North America and Western Europe.
On 20-21 October 2022 School of Politics and Governance at HSE University hosted the Fifth International Symposium on Development and Governance in the BRICS.It gathered the speakers from ten countries, who discussed the public administration reforms in general, and such their aspects as tackling the consequences of COVID-19 pandemics, international project management, risk management and digitalization.
The tourism industry has been recognized as one of the hardest hit sectors of the economy due to the introduction of restrictive measures to counter the spread of the pandemic. Thus, experts estimated that the income of domestic hoteliers would fall 2.7 times by the end of 2020. But the pandemic also provides opportunities for Russia’s domestic tourism market, according to a recent report by HSE University experts. The researchers estimate that the market could potentially generate up to 1.5 trillion rubles.
During the pandemic, most Russians have been concerned with the health of their families, parents, and friends, as well as their own financial well-being. These are the findings of a survey conducted by the HSE Institute for Public Administration and Governance. At the same time, Russian citizens are least worried about potential food shortages. This is what makes them fundamentally different from Americans, British, German, and Chinese people, who are more worried about food supplies.
