Chapter Summary

This chapter examines if and how political control over academic research can enhance without damaging the academic fields that are expected to promote advancements to the building of the nation-state. Apart from analyzing methods used to direct research and academic behaviour, it also examines the historical and institutional changes in the academic curriculum and discipline structures and re-organizations that took place in the 1990s. The chapter shows that, at first sight, academic disciplines were liberalized, academic organizations democratized, and scholars given the chance to earn extra money. The effect of the introduction of the election system was that institute leaders were appointed by members and approved by the political leadership of CASS.

Keywords: academic organizations; CASS; election system; political control
