   Is Something Stirring in Central Asia?
Co-Hosted by the Atlantic Council and Central Asia-Caucasus Institute

Monday, April 3, 2017
4:00 p.m. 

Since the death of Uzekistan’s President Islam Karimov in September of 2016, the stability  that characterized key developments and overall dynamics in Uzbekistan as well as in the Central Asia region as a whole, has been undergoing a noticeable shift. Initiatives of the newly installed President Mirziyoyev in Uzbekistan and proposals regarding reforms by President Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan suggest that something may be stirring in Central Asia. This first joint forum of the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute and the Atlantic Council will present these developments, ask if they represent a real shift, and consider the implications of such changes for the Central Asia region as a whole and for its place in the world.

Ambassador John Herbst
Director, Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center

Fresh Insights on Andijan, 2005


Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016, from 5 to 7 p.m.
(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.

 

A video recording of this event is now available on the SAIS events YouTube channel.

Speakers:

    John C.K. Daly, Non-Resident Senior Scholar, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute 

    Jeffry W. Hartman, Colonel, U.S. Army, and Chief, Army International Affairs

Moderated by S. Frederick Starr, Chairman, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute

  

Please note that this event will NOT be held in the Rome Building, but instead will be nearby at: 
Bernstein-Offit Building ("BOB"), Room 500
SAIS - Johns Hopkins University
