Public Lecture: Model of the Philosophy of Education in the 21st Century
A critical role of education is to detect how personalities are formed to meet the needs of the nation and society at its various stages of development. Throughout history societies set the task to form a personality that is crucial to attain the specific goals of social development. Each stage of development in history presents societal values which are changing and stimulate the formation of this personality and its social portrait. In the 21st century, the demands of globalisation result in new value orientations aimed to form personality traits. This includes traits such as determining a scientific worldview, professional competence, high human moral qualities and a creative rather than destructive mentality. The modern philosophy of education is aimed at addressing these values that form the 21st century personality. This lecture will focus on approaches and tools used in personality formation in the 21st century.

Public Lecture: Favourite Mistakes: Public Policy in Theory and Practice
Public policy analysis is now a developed academic field, taught in very similar ways in Master of Public Administration and Master of Public Policy programs around the world. The world of policy practice is quite different, however, varying by country, region, experience and context. How well does theory match practice, and are there any systematic differences in policy styles? Do the same mistakes keep getting made, or do policy styles have their own habits and their own, favourite mistakes?

Public Lecture: Medical Myths
Medical myths have existed since the dawn of time. If in ancient times, myths appeared due to encounters with the unknown, today they emerge as a result of fortunes spent on medicine and the work of marketing teams. It is the clash of the titans. Science has advanced so far ahead that, even with a university degree, not everything can be understood, and much remains completely incomprehensible and confusing.

Public Lecture: Can Past Earthquakes Affect Contemporary Rainfall-Initiated Landslide Hazards? - Evidence from Central Asia and Japan
Much of Central Asia and most parts of Japan have experienced major earthquakes, and many landslides are triggered by earthquakes in both regions. However, a larger number of landslides are triggered by rainfall, especially in Japan. Rainfall-initiated landslides tend to occur on hillslope positions where subsurface water accumulates – e.g., concave slopes and areas downslope of ridgelines so that subsurface water can accumulate. In contrast, earthquake-initiated landslides typically occur near ridgelines and on convex or planar slopes, sites where seismic waves amplify.
