Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses how the state has maintained the image of an academically prestigious institution, and kept its political influence over the research agenda without losing all of its academic researchers. The chapter especially concerns the material and intellectual circumstances enjoyed by members of CASS in the period of the reforms to the turn of the millennium. This chapter traces the changes in the circumstances under which scholars do their work, and how and why these circumstances have changed. The chapter begins with a short discussion of student recruitment at CASS. On the basis of an analysis of living conditions, the system of promotions, and the financial problems of CASS, the author attempts to explain various considerations academics have to take into account when making decisions to remain at CASS or to leave.

Keywords: academics; CASS; financial problems; reforms; student recruitment
