Alash nationalist party and Modernization of public consciousness
Domestic scientists are conducting in depth study of Alash Orda’s history. They intend to put the research outcomes into a special scientific-documentary collection. This was announced in Astana at a conference dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Alash movement. Famous scientists, cultural workers and philologists discussed the association’s historical role on the path to independence and preservation of national identity. According to analysts, similar ideas of Alash Orda and the Modernization of Public Consciousness program serve as a guide for sustainable development in the future.
SHAKIR YBYRAI, PROFESSOR, GUMILEV EURASIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY:
- A legacy of Alash Orda’s representatives has not been studied thoroughly. We have formed several groups consisted of philologists and historians, who study Alash Orda’s contribution to development of every science. I think that a comprehensive understanding of their ideas and systematization will help us to preserve the valuable heritage.
