Global educational policy under the influence of non-political risks

The consequences of the current pandemic threaten the entire sustainable development agenda, including Goal 4, adopted by a resolution of the UN General Assembly in 2015, which is to ensure increased access to education at all levels. Along with the fact that before the pandemic, about 22% of children in the world were deprived of the opportunity to study and attend school, the massive and emergency transition to online learning showed that access to it is limited by the technical capabilities of using the Internet and the financial situation of families.

The long road home: the return of cultural values of former colonies as an important political trend

This year is a suitable historical moment for the resumption of discussions about the material claims of the former colonies. The "Black Lives Matter" movement, which has taken over the Western world, creates a very favorable information background for the demonstrative self-flagellation of former colonial powers, as well as conditions for the formation of a "new ethic" when the possession and display of cultural values exported during the colonial period is declared a form of neocolonialism.

The philosophy of American pragmatism in solving the problems of radioactive waste disposal

The rapid development of the nuclear industry in the twentieth century, the widespread use of radioactive isotopes are accompanied by the accumulation of radioactive waste (RW) and spent nuclear fuel (SNF) around the world. Improper handling of RW and SNF can lead to significant damage to the ecology of the entire planet, and not just of a single state. Therefore, the issue of disposal of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel is the most important component of the overall environmental problem on a planetary scale.

Keywords: RW, SNF, American pragmatism, environmental problems, John Dewey

The old law and the "new" law of the Belarusian society. Notes of the deputy-lawyer

All the troubles in human society come from the inability to negotiate. The contractual theory of the origin of law, which has come down to us, albeit in a rather simplified form, describes the state of primitive society as a "war of all against all" (Thomas Hobbes), as a result of which there was an awareness of the need to negotiate respect for the life and freedom of others in exchange for limiting one's own permissiveness. So the law arose and the law was formed.

Keywords: Republic of Belarus, crisis of legality, Belarusian law, Constitution
