Well-being and Coping Strategies of Single Mothers in Osh after the 2010 Conflict in Kyrgyzstan
The 2010 inter-communal violence in Kyrgyzstan left the women of Osh exposed to many difficulties. Satisfactory living conditions were replaced by increased challenges such as deteriorating health and education systems, declining communication and economic opportunity and the loss of property. The increased mortality rate of males and labour migration during and after the conflict resulted in an increased number of single mothers. This study investigates trends related to the well-being of these women, examining their coping mechanisms and the factors that make their lives meaningful in post-conflict Osh.

Eliot asked 90 years ago: “Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?”
