About the Centre for Comparative History and Politics

The Centre for Comparative History and Politics was established in 2012 as a joint project between Faculty of History and Political Science (Perm State University) and the European University at Saint Petersburg within the framework of the Department Development Partnership Program (DDPP). The Centre’s research focus is comparative politics; its research fellows combine expertise in political science, history, and anthropology to pursue diverse research agenda under comparativist umbrella. From the onset, the Center dealt with the issue of patron-client relationships in historical and contemporary contexts; the results were an International Conference, the Summer School, the series of research papers, and two edited volumes.
