Public Lecture by dr. Peter Plenta "Kyrgyzstan: The Island of Democracy, Instability and Unpredictability in Central Asia”

2016-09-16 Institute News

IIRPS VU invites to the lecture by dr. Peter Plenta about “Kyrgyzstan: The Island of Democracy, Instability and Unpredictability in Central Asia”. Kyrgyzstan, the small and underdeveloped state in the heart of Asia, received the attention of academicians due to its “different story.” The country once called “Switzerland of Central Asia,” is now better known because of two revolutions and ethnic clashes. However, the country develops democratic/pluralistic political system with small but active non-governmental sector since 2010. We will focus on three aspects of the “different story”:

1. Openness to foreign ideas (with the focus on ideas coming from Russia)

2. Why authoritarianism in Kyrgyzstan failed (both soft and hard version)

3. Recent development and future of the country

Lecture will take place October 5 (Wednesday), 3 p.m., room 401. It there will be a discussion moderated by lecturer of IIRPS VU assoc. dr. Konstantinas Andrijauskas.

In the eyes of others

Former Speaker of the Parliament of the Republic of Lithuania Ms. Irena Degutienė

Today more than ever before not only knowledge but rather analitical skills and extensive erudition are requisite. In this Institute you will not only acquire knowledge, but what is more important - you will learn to reason.
