With rumors circulating that Uzbek President Islam Karimov has died, the academic question of regime succession had become very immediate. What’s next for Uzbekistan, and what does that mean for the region and for the world? Will we simply see another strongman take power? Should we worry about unrest?  With events continuing to unfold, the CSIS Russia and Eurasia Program and the Central Asia Program at the George Washington University are pleased to host a panel discussion with several top specialists on the region, kicked off with a video-teleconference with RFE/RL specialists in Prague who are closely following events on the ground in Tashkent.
