Abstract. The author dwells upon the transformation of the political system of the Russian Federation, which has caused certain changes in education and political science. The technology of ‘soft power’ is gradually being introduced into the administrative system. According to the theories of the neo-institutionalism and political management, communities enter into relations of interaction within the formation of state policy. Correspondingly, discourse becomes a part of the formation of state policy. The involvement of actors in discourse should be regarded as their politicization. The politicization of discourse leads to an increase in tension between the subjects of the formation and implementation of state scientific and educational policy.

Keywords: political discourse, scientific policy, educational policy, political system, politicization of discourse, the neo-institutionalism, political management, technology
