Oleg Zaitsev, Dean of the Higher School of Law at the Institute of Public Administration and Civil Service (IPACS) of RANEPA, noted:
“The meeting of representatives of the Association of Law Universities of the SCO Countries was very fruitful and effective. In modern geopolitical conditions, new players are appearing on the world stage, but I would call them “sleeping before” – such associations of states as the SCO, EAEU, BRICS, etc. During this meeting, we were able to discuss, on the one hand, joint projects with the inclusion of all members of the Association – let’s start with a monograph on the most important issues of our cooperation. On the other hand, we have agreed with various partners on bilateral cooperation. The main goal we set – to give new opportunities to our students – has been achieved. I hope that by the second semester we will offer concrete opportunities.”
