The XI Annual International Scientific Student Conference «Contemporary Global Trends: Challenges and Risks for Central Asia»

On 1th March 2019 Kazakh-German University holds the XI Annual International Scientific Student Conference «Contemporary Global Trends: Challenges and Risks for Central Asia».

The development of modern societies is in the process of large-scale changes and new global challenges associated with geopolitical, financial, and energy instability, as well as food, environmental, and information security, and the competition in the sphere of research and technologies. One of the key features of Central Asia in terms of contemporary global challenges is the increased dependence of the region on the situation in the international arena. On the other hand, some Central Asian countries seem to be «closing up' in neo-isolationism.

How can the economic and sociopolitical situation in the countries of Central Asia allow us to judge the dynamic and sustainable development of these countries in the medium term? How should the development strategies of these countries look like against the backdrop of competition of global and regional centers of power? What development opportunities and prospects does Kazakhstan have in the face of the existing reality? All these are the issues that will be discussed during the conference. The conference will be held in four sections:

SECTION TOPICS:
Section 1 Transformation of International Relations in the XXI century
Section 2 Modernization of Economics in the context of Globalization
Section 3 Contemporary Global Digital Trends: Technological Aspects
Section 4 Multilingualism in the Context of Globalization: Challenges and Prospects.
