INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM OF SCIENTIFIC AND SOCIAL INTERACTION
THE purpose of the Program is to create an organizational basis for cooperation in the scientific and educational sphere between non – state and state systems, as well as at the international level.
JUSTIFICATION OF PURPOSE.
In 1991 the USSR broke up into sovereign States. In international relations, Russia remained the successor of the USSR and embarked on the path of transition from autocracy to democracy. And the development of democracy is impossible without civil society. In the post-Soviet space, civil society has not yet fully formed and the habit of relying on the state is still strong in the public consciousness. Most people still treat social activities with hostility, as a kind of “social burden”.
In order to awaken civic activity, we draw the attention of educated people to the fact that in Russia and other post-Soviet countries more than twenty years ago the legal basis for independent activity, free from state interference, was created. We just need to carefully study the laws, especially the law “On science and state science and technology policy”. As well, as International conventions in the field of science and education, to which Russia joined in the early 90s. And on the basis of the fact that in accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation the norms of international law prevail over national law, international conventions must be unconditionally recognized and respected.
These explanations and deals with the International Academy of Main Education (IAME), having initiated the International program of scientific and social interaction in 2004. Currently, Participants in the program was the number of organizations, including Network Consortium of Continuing Education (NCCE) carries out its activities in accordance with UNESCO’s strategy. It should be noted that the Russian legislation in the scientific and educational sphere has long been brought into line with the norms of international law (the law “On science and state scientific and technical policy”, “On education”, “On approval of the Federal program for the development of education”, etc.).
The law establishes the equality of state and non-state scientific organizations, as scientific organizations are recognized organizations of any organizational and legal forms and forms of ownership.
Freedom of scientific creativity with the right to reasonable risk is guaranteed.
Non-interference of the state in the process of scientific creativity is guaranteed.
The right to receive and freely disseminate scientific information, to enter freely into the international information and communication space with a free presentation of scientific views, and to participate freely in international scientific and educational activities is guaranteed.
Of course, there are restrictions, as in any civilized state, relating to state and national security. But the above-mentioned basic legal norms, even with changes in the legislation will remain, as their change will require changes to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, which no political force will encroach.
All of the above almost verbatim corresponds to the provisions of the above-mentioned laws. And from this it follows that there are all legal conditions for self-realization, both in the public system and in the public sector of science, since the public, commercial and public sectors are equal and equal.
However, non-state scientific and educational institutions have to face a lack of understanding of this legal fact. Therefore, there is a need to literally cite one of the provisions of the law “On approval of the Federal program for the development of education” The law 51 of 10.04.2000 says: “The main directions of development of the education system (including their transfer) the functioning of the state and public system of quality assessment of educational institutions, including licensing, certification, state and public accreditation.”
Since there should be no superfluous words or ambiguously constructed phrases in the law, the highlighted should be understood literally as a rule of law providing for equal and equivalent existence of both state and public systems and their technical and legal mechanisms. In this case, such mechanisms are licensing, certification and state and public accreditation.
However, not wanting to put up with such equality, some “statesmen” try to interpret this rule of law only as the need for public control over the state system of licensing, certification and accreditation. But this interpretation is groundless, because if it were about public control, then the phrase would be different. I. e. not “functioning of the state and public system of assessment of quality of activity of educational institutions”, – but “functioning of the state system of assessment of quality of activity of educational institutions, and PUBLIC CONTROL over its assessment”.
But if there are legal opportunities, the problem is in the passivity of the scientific community, which itself should be engaged in the implementation of these opportunities through the conceptual development of specific areas. And not only in the scientific aspect, – but also in the practical. It is well known that there are all kinds of human rights defenders – ombudsmen. They protect everyone and everything. But in the scientific and educational system there is nothing like this, and the scientists, teachers and heads of organizations are helpless in front of zealous “lawyers”. As a result, not only those who are really engaged in profanation suffer, but also quite normal institutions and universities.
All this, including the establishment of a system of legal protection and as the basis of development, details of which section the objectives of the Program.
