Next weekend I’ll be talking about Uzbekistan at a conference organized by Awareness Projects International, an organization committed to raising awareness of social and political issues among Uzbek youth. I’m excited to be speaking with a diverse group of panelists including Sanjar Umarov, the head of the Sunshine Uzbekistan coalition, Bahodir Choriyev, the head of the Birdamlik (Solidarity) Movement of Uzbekistan, Nathan Hamm, the editor of Registan.net, and API organizers Dmitiry Nurullayev, Ruslan Nurullaev, and Aziz Yuldashev.
The title of my talk is “Beyond Succession: The Politics of Fear in Uzbekistan”. The conference will be held January 19 at Seattle University in the Boeing Room at 10:00 am. Come check it out!
