The Civil Society Initiative (CSI) was established in 2017 to foster an enabling policy and administrative environment for civil society in Central Asia and assist the development of a broad spectrum of civil society actors. CSI promotes the building of domestic institutional and leadership capacity, under three over-arching pillars of skills, knowledge and resources. The Civil Society Initiative is part of the Graduate School of Development of the University of Central Asia. The Civil Society Discussion Papers series is intended as a dynamic avenue for authors to share ideas with audiences concerned with current and emerging issues facing civil society development in Central Asia. ‘Discussion Papers’ may be cited without seeking prior permission.
