Fresh Insights on Andijan, 2005

(reception at 5 p.m. with Georgian wine; main program at 5:30)
An armed uprising rallied by an Uzbek Islamic group, and the clash with Uzbekistan's security forces in Andijan on May 13, 2005, has long been a subject of contention. Now Jeffry W. Hartman has published a detailed account of what is known to have occurred, and John C.K. Daly has written a study on how the international press actually covered those events. Both authors will present their findings at this forum, and discussion will follow.
