The method of this unprecedented analysis is based on the technology of intelligent machining large linguistic data. The study analyzed almost 127 million texts published in the last year in 30,000 media in 140 countries.
The first version of a unique digital study-analysis of large linguistic data on the perception of key global challenges by different countries, continents and cultures of the world was presented at the forum in mid-May. World stars from 100 countries of the world discussed it within the framework of the Astana forum held in the format of the Global Challenges Summit. In July, the work on a unique international study was completed and it alarmingly states: humanity, whose destiny is determined by the dramatic problems common for the planet, perceives them highly segmented, seeing regional problems much sharper than planetary ones.
The study revealed a significant difference in the perception of the key challenges of global development between continents, mega-regions and countries. If the regions of the developing world are mainly focused on acute economic and social challenges, the developed countries are much more seriously concerned about the sustainable development agenda of the planet. For some countries that already live today in the reality of the digital economy, the most important threats include the problems of cybersecurity, the unemployment remains as the most important threat for others. If the problems of large-scale migrations and terrorist threats are on the agenda of Europe and North America, the problem of inaccessibility of the basic energy and transport infrastructure is more significant for the countries of the developing world.
Structurally analysis is the explication of statistical indicators and the explanation of formulated problems from the standpoint of socio-cultural attitudes and the economic situation.
Kazakhstan is represented in the third cluster, whose countries are characterized by the need for state support and the decisive role of their own efforts in achieving certain goals. As a rule, representatives of this cluster are more inclined to cooperative mode of action, rather than competition. The priority direction of development of the country by Kazakhstanis is the achievement of economic growth and the stable state of the economic system. Just less important is the creation of an open society with humanistic principles. The least relevant is the development of the country's military potential.
According to the study, residents of Kazakhstan have a high level of patriotic attitude towards their country. Along with a pronounced sense of patriotism and a general recognition of the importance of democratic values, the residents of Kazakhstan are characterized by the definition of tolerance as a value. There is a certain level of trust in representatives of another religion and nationality. Moreover, on average, the importance of articulation of the foundations of a tolerant attitude in children's upbringing is emphasized.
"Violence against people is considered absolutely unacceptable. The level of generalized trust is slightly above average. This determines honesty and unselfishness as the primary basis of communication. In general, for residents of the country, the recognition of the importance of the democratic foundations of society is crucial," the document says.
At the same time, for residents of Kazakhstan, the attitude to the Government, state structures and the electoral system is based on the expressed trust. The main elements of the electoral process (election campaign, media coverage, conditions for the actions of opposition forces, vote counting) are recognized as legitimate.
Violation of the key regulatory principles of civil relations (tax evasion, bribery) is perceived more negatively. Confidence in informal institutions (charities, environmental companies, women's rights organizations) is generally the same, although residents are more likely to have a passive involvement in the activities of such institutions. Participation in peaceful protests, demonstrations, donations, signing of petitions is noted on an insignificant level.
According to the study, the threat of military conflicts and terrorism are recognized as the main risks to the country's welfare. A little less of concern is the possibility of civil strife and violation of the borders of private space by public services. The problem of the ecological state and the spread of infectious diseases is also recognized as significant. Along with this, the problem of hunger and lack of medicines are referred to as irrelevant. On average, there is an articulation of the absence of the difficulty in accessing food and essential goods. Subjective assessment of their own well-being is defined as positive: residents are on average satisfied with the existing standard of living.
