Scientists from Altai State University started to implement the project called “State Regulation of Social Processes in the Central Asian Region of Russia of the Imperial and Soviet Periods”, which was among the winners of the competition for grant support from the President of the Russian Federation for state support of leading scientific schools of the country in 2020–2021.

The project manager, Professor of the Department of Oriental Studies at AltSU Institute of History and International Relations, Yulia A. Lysenko, notes that the department’s team has been studying the processes of socio-political and economic development of the Central Asian region for many years, and the new project, which received government support, was a logical continuation of previous studies on this topic.

“Within the framework of the project, the research team plans to conduct a detailed analysis of the social aspects of Russian policy in Central Asia in the 19th and 20th centuries. The creation of health and veterinary services in the region, the judicial and school systems are among them. We are also exploring the religious aspects of social policy and the issues of Muslim emancipation” says Yulia A. Lysenko. “Despite the difficult situation in which all of us found ourselves because of the coronavirus pandemic, we started some of the research work under the project back in February of this year, and as a result we have already prepared and sent 13 articles to various high-rated journals for publication. Twice we have held organizational seminars on the Zoom online platform”.

The research team of the project included scientists and graduate students from Russia, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan, representing not only Altai State University, but also Altai State Medical University, Kazakh-American Free University, as well as the East Kazakhstan Regional Local Lore and History Museum (Ust-Kamenogorsk).

One of the main objectives of the project, designed for two years, is to maintain the main directions of work of the scientific school of Yulia A. Lysenko, aimed at developing historical research of the Central Asian region. Under the terms of the project, some of its performers will have to defend their candidate and doctoral dissertations, prepare monographs for publication, etc.
