Mirziyoyev's Domestic Reforms, Year One: Judiciary, Governance and Civil Society
Since Shavkat Mirziyoyev acceded to power in the fall of 2016, a wave of reforms has affected every sector in Uzbekistan – ranging from the judiciary and governance to electoral matters and civil society. The Western press and even analysts have taken only superficial note of these reforms. But what is their actual breadth and depth? Can they actually be implemented? And what will they mean for Uzbekistan and the region?
CACI addressed these issues in a Silk Road Paper by Anthony C. Bowyer entitled, Political Reform in Mirziyoyev's Uzbekistan: Elections, Political Parties and Civil Society.
This Forum, moderated by CACI Chairman S. Frederick Starr, presented the findings of our authors Mjuša Sever and Anthony Bowyer and focused on reforms in the judiciary, governance, and civil society.
