Address of the President to the people of Kazakhstan
Third Modernization of Kazakhstan
"Only those nations who manage to set the future goals and proceed resolutely facing the challenges,
instead of sitting on the hedge and waiting, are the winners."
The KazISS Chief Research Fellow Irina Chernykh took part in the discussion on modernization of public consciousness organized by the Institute of World Economy and Politics (IWEP).
Political experts and sociologists, authors and journalists gathered at the round table in the Almaty IWEP office to discuss the current issues of modernization of the public conscience and the impact of traditional mentality and the so-called trap of the archaic thinking.
The discussion was conducted within two thematic sessions: "Traditional Mentality for Modernization: a pillar or barrier?" and "Social Modernization: conundrums and solutions".
