Hard, Soft, and Smart Power - Education as a Power Resource Hardback
Part of the Dia-Logos series
In the current global context, there is a shift in power paradigm from the rigid realpolitik perspective towards the inclusion of multiple faces of power.
This publication focuses on the power forms identified by Joseph Nye: hard, soft, and smart, and evaluates education as a resource of power.
Resource ambiguity is one of the key shortcomings of soft power theory.
Education is a smart power resource since it has both hard and soft power characteristics.
The case study of Kazakhstan reveals that international educational programs allow education to become a power resource.
