The School of Russian politics will be opened in Ufa and this is the first regional stage of the federal project, initiated by the political party “United Russia” under the patronage of the chairman of the party’s Supreme Council, the State Duma speaker Boris Gryzlov. For two years dozens talented young people have finished the school but since not all of them are ready to go to Moscow, it is decided to open its regional divisions and the first such division will be opened in Bashkortostan soon.
The director of the Russian State Social University’s Ufa division, the head of the School’s regional division Rustem Akhmadinurov, the General Director of the Social Conservative Policy Center RB Dmitry Trapeznikov and the editor-in-chief of the newspaper “Job for You” Arsen Nuridganov told about this project during the press-conference in the news agency “Bashinform”.
“The idea to establish the regional School of Russian politics appeared at the “United Russia” forum, held in Ufa in August” – Rustem Akhadinurov explained – “The main School’s target is the search for talented young people (at the age less than 35), their training and support of their innovational projects since we face the shortage of qualified specialists in the Republic. We mean the young people, already possessing an education and certain experience and, sure, the projects they are ready to offer to our society in different spheres. The School of Russian politics has to help these young people to find their place in the Republican managerial elite”.
The site www.ufatrening.ru begins working in Bashkiria today and before October 6 every potential listener has to send his questionnaire and the essay, where the main ideas of his project are formulated, to this site. It is planned to collect 25-30 students to the first group and about 100 people expected to pass the training at the School in the course of one year. The education in different forms will take nine days and after that the students will go on the probation period to the authority, to the ministries and departments and to the companies, which the listeners’ projects are concerned with.
The deputies of the State Duma and the State Council, Vice-Premiers of the Government RB, the heads of the Republican ministries and the biggest enterprises will read lectures to the students. At that the road to the School is free for representatives of all political parties. The project’s initiators intend to show the creative youth, able to move further in its progress, to the Republican authority and hope the managers of a new generation will be able to make their potential a reality. The best school graduates will be enlisted to the personnel’s reserve of the party “United Russia”, the Administration of the President RB and the Plenipotentiary of the President of Russia in the Volga federal district.
“The regional School of Russian politics is the first but not the last project of the Social Conservative Policy Center RB” – Dmitry Trapeznikov said- “We intend to open the business club on the base of the Center, within which frames the leading business people may discuss the most actual problems in the business sphere”.
The Center also intends to open the Expert Club, uniting the representatives of the expert community in Bashkiria.
“We are ready to go to municipalities in order to conduct the monitoring of the situation there and to introduce the results of this monitoring to the leadership RB” – Dmitry Trapeznikov mentioned.
It is planned to hold the international conference “The social technologies in coming-to-be of the public society”, which should help to define new vectors in this sphere, in Ufa in December 2010.
