Higher Education in Transition to a Market Economy: A Case Study
This paper reports on the situation in Russian higher education since the start of transition, and presents a case study of the finance and budgetary arrangements at the University of Tomsk in some detail. It then illustrates some aspects of the situation in Tomsk with reference to four important issues facing Russia's incompletely reformed economy. These are: (1) ownership, property rights and governance issues; (2) funding issues and the state budget; (3) the tax regime; and (4) non-functioning of the market economy. The paper concludes by highlighting areas in which further reform progress is urgently needed in order to enable universities to function more normally.
