Within the framework of the fundamental project No. 3693 / GF4 "Religious identification of the Turks of Central Asia in the globalizing society".

General historical and cultural space, regional originality and dynamics of interaction "and its subproject" Discourses of religious and cultural symbiosis and models of confessional and cultural tolerance of the Turkic societies of Central Asia in the Middle Ages and New Times (comparative analysis) "is the main task of the international conference that we are planning.

The project of the conference is subordinated to one task: to look at the current state of Islam in Central Asia and the state of religious identification and their interaction on the basis of similarities and differences in modalities in the countries of the Arab and Turkic world in the context of Islam.

The purpose of this approach is, in particular, to test the hypothesis about the significant impact of confessional specific for Islam on the construction of appropriate models of religious and cultural symbiosis and complementarity. This hypothesis also does not exclude that the eventual differences between the Arab and Turkic worlds were structural, and therefore had a significant impact on the practice of relations with Islam in Central Asia.
