AKHP Public Lecture, Khorog: Challenges of a New Time: Solutions for Water Problems in GBAO
Climate change and population growth are important factors that are impacting the availability of water resources. A larger share of water resources is being used for agriculture and other purposes in rural areas. Before the 1990s, water in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO) was regulated through collective farms and Oblast-level water management bodies. Today, each farmer has to independently handle farm irrigation. Year after year, improper irrigation of land erodes lands and degrades crops. This lecture will offer efficient solutions for water-related problems in GBAO.

AKHP Public Lecture, Almaty: Values, Identities and the Problem of Modernisation in Central Asia
This lecture will cover the modernisation of Central Asian countries, leveraging concepts from cognitive sociology (such as values, identities, institutes and types of social systems), and highlighting the importance of socio-cultural institutes in the modernisation of the state, society, economics and politics. It will also explore the degree of success of social modernisation projects. The lecturer sees modernisation as a transition to another level of socio-cultural complexity, which significantly exceeds the current condition of our society. At the current level (as determined by the socio-cultural theory of society), it is not sufficient to ensure adequate self-reflection on the condition of the society and possibilities for modernisation.

History of Airlines in the Pamirs: Geographic Isolation and Ways Out
The lecture will discuss the little-studied history of civil airlines in different areas of Pamir from 1929 through 1993. In 2013-2018, the lecturer was engaged in a research project, and collected significant number of materials from state’s archives in the Pamirs, as well as individual and family photos. Using the collected data, the lecturer conducted objective analysis of the events, related to the history of airlines in the Pamirs. The paradox is that geographical isolation of the Pamirs and market economy make flights to the Pamirs progressively less available, and sometimes flights might not be available several months in a row. In light of this, building on his assumptions and recommendations the lecturer will engage the audience into discussion to find solutions for this problem.

AKHP Public Lecture, Bishkek: Different Journalism in Kali Yuga Era
The lecturer will encourage us to think about pending issues and complex challenges that the current age puts forward in contemporary journalism. The politicization of media and manipulation of mass communication have cast doubts on its very foundation – freedom of speech and ethics code of journalists. The growing disparity between traditional and social media and the normalization of “fake news” puts journalists and the thinking public in a difficult situation. There are no universal solutions, and each journalist has to make his or her own choice. The lecture is aimed at representatives from the media and the general public.

AKHP Public Lecture, Dushanbe: Formation of Personality Through Music: Simple Conversations and Complex Subjects
The way a pianist uses undertones and technical solutions are often interconnected with how that person understands music and their own self. The process of playing and training highlights the various sides of human individuality (both strong and weak), and such dialog facilitates formation of human personality. Dilbar Khakimova will cover the the importance of in-depth and honest dialog between the musical script (composer) and its interpretation (by the performer) in the education of the young generation, as an efficient pedagogical approach to formation of personality. She will also present theoretical conclusions, and substantiate them with examples from her pedagogical experience.
