The concept of cultural policy refers to the policies of diverse stakeholders aimed to regulate or affect the production and distribution of cultural goods and services. This book critically assesses the cultural policies enforced by the dominant stakeholders, national governments of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Through a comparative analysis of the legislations and policies adopted in these countries, this book draws a clear picture of the cultural legislations and public management of post-Soviet Central Asian region with permissive environment and semi modern demobilised societies. This book attempts to answer the question which way of life the governments of Central Asian countries promote? Which approach has been used for shaping the cultural sphere? How is the regulation and management of the cultural sphere organised? What are the main differences and similarities among these states? Overall, this book provides an innovative and original contribution to the field of cultural policy and Central Asian studies. As a result, this research may be helpful to all those students, researchers and policy-makers who have an interest in these fields of studies.
The base of management takes different forms depending of its cultural origin. Management or technique that is appropriate in one culture may not be suitable for another. Organizations and institutions located in certain places predominantly represent specific aspects of the cultural environment of that particular location. From this point of view the western culture, which justifies western model of management is therefore susceptible to becoming ineffective. It has become clear that ruling systems in countries, such as UK, Germany, and Sweden are not the same and common generalizations have no profound proof. In the same way Middle-Eastern or Asian types of management generalization similarly aren t justifiable. For international managers, the main aspects, which have to be revised are values deeply instilled in those societies in concern. Culture expresses meanings that people use to personify various aspects of life, their attitudes and role in life.
The comparative study of countryside cases is aimed at the identi cation and interpretation of speci c practice of "collaborative models" observed within the rural contexts of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan Republics. It employs an overview of the Resource Mobilization Theory by Bob Edwards (2007), as an approach for investigation of main differences and commonalities of mutual communal activities, aimed on acquisition of social changes and other rural benefits, analyzing experiences, interactions and practices of villagers within their own rural realities. Finally the study thinks over the retrieved collaborative phenomenon and calls attention to the researcher s attempt to propose scheming of the most functional and optimal aspects of the studied collaborative models.
The book addresses the topic of a contractual balance between host state and foreign investor interests, which is highly desired for a mutually beneficial development of an international petroleum production project. While identifying the notion, types and ways for investments into such projects, this work enumerates and explains the respective interests of the parties involved. The study systematically examines the structure of a basic petroleum agreement and its specific provisions used to protect the balance of interests. It also evaluates the fundamental legal differences of the classical international petroleum contract models. By comparing subsoil and investment legislations in all five countries of the Central Asian region, i.e. Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan (with a separate attention devoted to the first state), this research elucidates legal investment climates created by these recipient countries for foreign investors wishing to inject funds in their petroleum production industries.
This work deals with the ethnic differentiation of marital behavior in Kazakhstan. The study of marital behavior of ethnic groups is important and necessary, especially in a multiethnic state as Kazakhstan. Undoubtedly, the institution of marriage regulates the social reproduction of the population, and differences in marital behavior have an impact on family organizations and fertility among ethnic groups. These differences may shape the age at first marriage, age at first birth, and so on, that will have subsequent effects on the family organization among these ethnic groups. This work attempts to analyze the differences in attitudes toward marital marital myths between ethnic Kazakhs and Slavics. The sociological research has revealed some significant differences in the myths existing about marriage between these ethnic groups. These differences, largely due to socio-cultural characteristics.
