Research areas

Dr. Gounko's early research focused on international higher education and policy. She was intrigued by the radical change in the official policy discourse that occurred in Russia and other Eastern European countries in a short period of time and the role of international organizations (such as the World Bank and the OECD) in shaping educational policies around the world. From an analytical framework combining globalization, welfare and neo-liberal policy perspectives on state, education, and knowledge, Dr. Gounko identified significant ideological shifts in public policy discourse and established a connection between the recommendations and policy proposals of the international agencies and the educational "modernization" currently promoted by the Russian government.
