Dr.Frederick Starr gave a lecture at WIUT

On 9th of November 2017 Dr.Frederick Starr gave a lecture on education, economy and development of the Central Asian countries in the framework of "Globalization and Sustainable Development" course at Westminster International University in Tashkent.

Dr. Frederick Starr is the founding Chairman of the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute and Silk Road Studies Program under Johns Hopkins University and he is one of the leading experts on Region. He published more than 20 books and 200 articles about the region.

His lecture at WIUT was mostly about the book “Lost Enlightenment: Central Asia's Golden Age from Arab Conquest to Tamerlane”, where  Dr. Starr opens up the Central Asian region to the world. In this sweeping and richly illustrated history, S. Frederick Starr tells the fascinating but largely unknown story of Central Asia's medieval enlightenment through the eventful lives and astonishing accomplishments of its greatest minds--remarkable figures who built a bridge to the modern world. Because nearly all figures wrote in Arabic, they were long assumed to have been Arabs. In fact, they were from Central Asia--drawn from the Persianate and Turkic peoples of a region that today extends from Kazakhstan southward through Afghanistan, and from the easternmost province of Iran through Xinjiang, China. He also shared his thoughts about the reasons of Central Asian enlightenment and its’ further decline.

Students were happy to ask their questions to Dr. Starr and to receive very profound answers.

Abstract 

The methodological approach of this study builds on examining the impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) on international migration. The advent of Internet and widespread use of mobile phones has dramatically changed the means of information access and global communication. Controlled for theoretically and empirically justified determinants of migration, the regression results suggest that the growing numbers of Internet and mobile phone users significantly raise the odds of forced migration. In other words, the means of new digital technologies give people unlimited access to rich online contends and opportunities to easy contact with relatives and friends in distant places, which facilitate migration processes by lowering costs and risks of relocation.
