“School for Foreign Affairs Newbie” IPACS RANEPA: lecture by political scientist Nazaket Mamedova “Conflicts in the post-Soviet space and the role of the great countries of the world”
On February 28th, a lecture by political scientist Nazaket Mamedova on the topic “Conflicts in the post-Soviet space and the role of the great countries of the world” was held for the participants of the “School for Foreign Affairs Newbie” IPACS RANEPA, within the framework of the “International Conflicts” block.
Nazaket Mamedova is a dissertation student of the Azerbaijan Academy of Sciences, a graduate of Baku State University, a specialist in international relations, the author of hundreds of articles on international relations, conflictology, foreign policy of the countries of the post-Soviet space, the new world order under the leadership of Russia and its allies.
Speaker told the students in detail about local conflicts in the post-Soviet space and their history, and touched upon the issues of “frozen” conflicts. Speaker explained to the students the current trends of the “turning point” era, using historical examples and comparisons.
Nazaket Mamedova noted: “The only way out is to spread the historical truth among the population. You need to boldly share your knowledge on social networks, read a lot and be able to think critically, always be on the side of justice and remember that the new is the well-forgotten old.”
Anna Churinova, a 2nd year student of Institute of Sectoral Management, RANEPA, said: “The speaker spoke about the support of friendly relations between the USSR and the Union republics. Now, according to her, Russia is considered an empire and a colonizer, although this is not true. All Union Republics were on an equal footing with the RSFSR. Unfortunately, due to the collapse of the USSR, conflicts in the Middle South-East (Georgia/Armenia/Azerbaijan) have escalated. I was pleased with the warm attitude of the speaker to the USSR and Russia. At the lecture, she recalled her childhood and youth spent as part of the Union.”
