IPPA Public Lecture, Bishkek: Predicting Poverty in Kyrgyzstan: A Hierarchical Approach
The Kyrgyz Republic is committed to achieving the sustainable development goals, including the goal of poverty alleviation. In this work, the presenters try to identify which are the individual characteristics and the macro-economic variables, such as GDP per capita and the unemployment rate at a regional level, that contribute the most in predicting the probability of being poor in Kyrgyzstan. A large body of the literature has investigated the main factors that influence the households at-risk of poverty. The central premise is that, the ability of a household to exploit available income-earning opportunities is shaped by its inherent characteristics. For a given household, the probability of being poor is determined by the extent and nature of its participation in the labor market, participation conditioned by the characteristics of the household itself.

AKHP Public Lecture, Almaty: Introduction to the International Law on Refugees, and Protection of Refugees in the Republic of Kazakhstan
The modern refugee law should be looked at from the viewpoint of a broader global context – the context, where it first appeared and began to evolve. In the early 20th century, the international community encountered the problem of refugees, and for humanitarian reasons, took on the role to provide refugees with protection and assistance. The model of international response with respect to protection of refugees was first established by the League of Nations, and evolved into a number of international treaties in this sphere. The failure to successfully address the issue of refugees after the Second World War entailed the need to develop a new international document to define legal status of refugees.
