Central Asia Policy Brief No. 24, April 2015
Uzbekistan is at the core of Central Asia’s future. However, since the early 2000s the country has increasingly become a kind of “black hole” in terms of scholarly and policy-oriented analysis. The Uzbekistan Initiative aims to fill this knowledge gap by providing independent, critical, and fresh analyses performed by local, regional, and international experts.
For its first Workshop, on April 6, 2015, the Uzbekistan Initiative gave the floor to a new generation of Uzbek scholars, who discussed political and socio-economic issues, as well as to the vibrant Uzbek diaspora in the US and its initiatives to preserve Uzbek culture and strengthen interaction with the homeland.
