Moscow State Institute (University) of International Relations of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has been actively involved in raising the political elite of both Russia and other countries for over fifty years now and boasts one of the well-known schools of political science. In the late 1980's MGIMO inaugurated a separate political science section which organically relied on the expertise accumulated during the preceding decades. In 1998 a new political science department was opened within MGIMO (of which Andrey Melvil is dean), originally oriented at international issues in the broadest sense of the term. Such bias was chosen because the international aspect is organic to modern comparative political science in general. The community of MGIMO political scientists is continually engaged in creative research, attracting gifted youth to their ranks and pursuing a harmonious combination of scientific tradition and innovation.
