Role of education institutions in modernisation and development
CRAIG CALHOUN [president of the Social Science Research Council]: Thank you, Mr President. Let me ask a more specific question. China could be an example, but other countries as well. China has made massive investments in education as part of its programme of modernisation and development. Can you say a little bit more about how you see educational institutions at different levels, including higher education and universities, playing a role in modernisation and development, and also the democratic process in Russia? Because these are questions of human capital, but they are also a question of knowledge and informed citizens who are able to hold the government accountable and to help set the agenda for the country.
DMITRY MEDVEDEV: Thank you, Mr Calhoun.
