Chapter Summary

The goal of this chapter is to study specific features of the professional reintegration of immigrant scientists from the countries of the former Soviet Union (FSU) trained in the humanities and the social sciences. Alarmism in the Russian public discourse about the ?brain drain" focused on researchers in science and technology, while social scientists and specialists in humanities remained largely outside the purview. Although this group is completely unquantified, sociological literature shows that the number of researchers in humanities and social sciences is markedly smaller than that in other fields. Faculties of humanities and social sciences are in great demand and the number of graduates and PhD students in these fields has doubled. The few authors writing about immigrant researchers in the humanities admit that their professional integration is much harder than that of their peers in mathematics, technology, and natural sciences.
