- Tajikistan’s patriotism law will accelerate the introduction of new socialization technologies
The Tajik parliament has approved a draft law on fostering patriotism.
The law is especially important in light of today’s dangers, including terrorism, extremism and other international crimes that concern humanity, said Dilshod Rakhmon, Chairman of the Supreme Council National Committee on Ensuring Constitutional Foundations, Human and Civil Rights and Freedoms.
For the purposes of implementing the patriotic law, concepts, programmes and research methodologies will be developed in order to raise awareness of citizens, especially young people.
According to the law, the state policy on promoting patriotism among citizens establishes a comprehensive organizational approach. The state undertakes to create “favourable conditions for the social, cultural, spiritual and physical development of citizens,” as well as to develop and implement effective forms of technology to promote the socialization of citizen personality.
Financial and economic support for patriotic education will be provided from the state budget at various levels and from other sources not prohibited by law. It is possible that dedicated funds will be established.
The CSTO Member States are actively engaged in the patriotic education of young people. Particular attention is being given to the preservation and protection of historical truth, in accordance with the recommendation to include historical memory lessons in the school curricula of CSTO Member States, with the goal of teaching the younger generation about the heroic deeds of the nations who won in the Great Patriotic War of 1941–1945.
Recommendations are expected to be adopted between 2023 and 2025. The CSTO Parliamentary Assembly will adopt recommendations on harmonizing the legislation of CSTO Member States in the area of military-patriotic education and awareness-raising, including a draft model law on military-patriotic youth organizations, and recommendations on developing common approaches by CSTO Member States to developing measures to counter external destructive attempts to revise and distort the historical events and outcome of the Great Patriotic War and the Second World War and methods of teaching the history of these wars.
