Students’ Political Club started its activity in 2008. Its objective is to motivate students, mostly “ International Relations” specialty, for international politics research, participation in discussions, and the development of tolerance. Students-members designed the Charter of the Club, according to which any student who wants to share his/her own point of view on vital problems of modernity and to discuss the acute questions of international politics with other participants has the right to be the member of the Club. The first president of the Club was the student of “International Relations” major Kim Gennady.
The Political Club meetings are dedicated to current events: students make analysis of international conflicts and try to find solutions to the problems which require knowledge of theoretical issues. Polemics stimulates public speaking.
The Heads of the Club in different years were the students of “International Relations” major : Pak K., Alexunina K, Belousov S.,Shramko S., Chernyshev V., Abdraimov A., Fedorova N., Seksenbaeva D. The Club ofen takes part in corporate publications.
The Political Club has various forms and kinds of its activity directed to further improvements of its work. In addition to monthly meetings with planned agenda, students worked at the project “Generation of the 21 century: Problems and Perspectives”.

One of the forms of meetings is “round table” format where members of the Club discuss acute problems.
The Political Club actively cooperates with Diplomatic Club of KIMEP, S.Demirel University, KazEU. These universities are participants of the ModelUN and other simulation games. For example , in November 2009 KIMEP hosted Model NATO game where the team of the Political Club presented the viewpoints of different states on the problem of disarmament; in 2010- Model UN game was held with UN representatives support. Experience of participation in various events, founded by the initial members of the Club, was gone on by the next generations of Political Club members. The students participate in various simulation games in different universities and city organizations.
In 2010-11 academic year students of the Club were involved into the activity of the international analytic group devoted to the problems of South Caucuses and Central Asia initiated by NUPI- Norwegian Institute of International Relations in Oslo. The initiator of this participation was Golikova V.I. - member of this international analytical group. Students Fedorova A. and Chernyshev V.- both students of the “International Relations” major were the most active participants of the project.
