Globalization is bringing about a redefinition to the mission of higher education and research; however, the insertion of post-Soviet universities in the global higher education arena poses specific challenges. The interplay between the Soviet higher education legacy and the pressures of globalization reveal a dual framework whereby adaptive responses and entrenched management logics run parallel (and often in conflict) with one another. Against this context, institutional change in universities across the former Soviet space is occurring within a framework of increased hybridity and contextual adaptation, thereby requiring innovative approaches to educational practice and reflexive responses to the imperatives of global science.
