Young scientists from the Department of Psychology of Communication and Psychotechnologies Sildysmaa Saryglar, Olga Borisova and Anastasia Gorbunova presented the results of their scientific studies on the international level. The research was conducted as part of the project “Social risks and security in the context of the transformation of migration processes in the Asian border of Russia”, supported by the Council on Grants of the President of the Russian Federation.

The studies were conducted over two years in six regions – Altai Krai, Khabarovsk Krai, Amur Oblast, Astrakhan Oblast, Volgograd Oblast, and the Republic of Tuva – and included mass population surveys, interviews with migrants and representatives of the expert community. In the course of the project, a model was developed to study social risks and social security in the field of interethnic and interfaith relations in a multinational society of the modern border region of Russia.

The research results have been extensively tested, published in journals included in the list of Higher Attestation Commission, indexed by RSCI, Scopus and Web of Science, presented at all-Russian and international conferences, including the 5th Bangkok International Conference of Social and Human Sciences, held on December 21–22 at Asian Institute of Technology (Bangkok, Thailand).
