Arman Mederovich Akhunbaev 

Doctor of Economics 

Pierre Mendès-France University (Grenoble, France)


Kyrgyzstan gained independence almost 30 years ago, yet multiple key indicators of its socio-economic development suggest that the country’s development model is not efficient and fails to meet contemporary challenges. The national economy is marked by low per capita income, significant labour migration, high level of poverty and social inequality, decreasing human capital, underdeveloped financial system, high foreign liabilities, a low proportion of high-productive industries, poor exporting capacity, etc. The lecturer will try to describe the causes of the inefficiencies of the Kyrgyz model by investigating the complex interplay between economics, politics, and law.


In 1995, Arman Mederovich Akhunbaev graduated from School #6 in Bishkek and entered the Kyrgyz-European Faculty of J. Balasagyn Kyrgyz National University. Later, he transferred to Pierre Mendès-France University (Grenoble, France). In 1998, he got his bachelor’s degree, and in 2009 successfully defended his thesis on “Monetary Policy in the Post-Soviet Economies: Case of the Kyrgyz Republic” and got a PhD.
