BREST, 13 January (BelTA) – The organization of the Belarusian People's Congress will help resolve the issues that have accumulated in the society, BelTA learned from Eduard Severin, a delegate of the forthcoming congress, an Associate Professor of the Political Science and Sociology Department of the Brest State A.S. Pushkin University, a Candidate of Political Sciences.
The delegate noted: “It is an important event that will facilitate the resolution of a number of issues plaguing the society starting with politics and ending with the social sphere.”
In his opinion, the constitutional reform is one of the key issues. “A constitutional reform cannot be implemented instantaneously. Nevertheless, some concrete reformation principles should be outlined within the framework of the Belarusian People's Congress. There is no doubt we should sum up certain results and make conclusions on recent development stages. We should also determine directions of development of the Belarusian economy taking into account the fact that we position ourselves as a people-centered and law-governed state,” Eduard Severin added.
The Brest Oblast branch of the trade union of education and science workers nominated Eduard Severin as a delegate of the 6th Belarusian People's Congress. The delegate intends to discuss matters of effective operation and development of the education system among other things with colleagues during the forum. The digitization of education will be one of the matters of current interest, he noted. Eduard Severin believes it is necessary to increase the level of education digitization.
“There is no doubt that accomplishments that exist within the framework of the Bologna Process are also important. On the other hand, one has to understand that the mechanisms that operate in other territories will not always be effective in our educational space. This is why we should come up with our own way of development of the Belarusian education system taking into account cutting-edge international accomplishments and our historical legacy,” the associate professor underlined.
Eduard Severin noted that it is impossible to resolve all the issues the Belarusian society is worried about during one congress. It is important to sketch out the main principles and directions of progressive advancement.
