Kyrgyzstan’s relative openness to a diversity of ideas, combined with its poverty, has caused it to accept a plethora of international academic institutions and programs, often exported by the sender rather than imported at Kyrgyzstan’s request.

Designing Institutions in a Post-socialist Transformation Process: Local Institutions in Regularising the Management of Pasture Resources in Kyrgyzstan
After the breakup of the Soviet Union, Kyrgyzstan faced a challenging transition from a state- managed to a market economy. Within the framework of agrarian reforms, agricultural land and livestock were redistributed, but state ownership was retained for forest, pasture and water resources. Rapid reforms created a temporary institutional vacuum, which stimulated the process of refilling by informal and newly created, decentralized, formal institutions.

Soldiers in a foreign land. The experiences of Tajik soldiers of the Soviet-Afghan War (1979-1989)
Over half a million Soviet citizens took part in the Soviet-Afghan War, lasting from 1979 until 1989. Of these more than fifteen thousand came from the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic. Many of these Tajik soldiers played an outsize role in the war as translators and as soldiers better accustomed to the cultural and climatic realities of Afghanistan than their northern Slavic brethren. Moreover, the Tajik fighters shared considerable cultural and linguistic similarities with many Afghans, giving them a particular position in the conflict. How did Tajik soldiers experience this war that caused death and destruction among people so similar to themselves? Is there truth to the claim often floated in the West during the Cold War that the Afghan War led to a political and even religious awakening among Central Asians?

Poverty Profile and Regional Welfare Disparities in the Kyrgyz Republic
Every country has places where living standards are lower than the national average. These welfare disparities between and within regions may stem from the concentration of people with better demographic and human capital characteristics (concentration hypothesis) or due to the differences in returns to these characteristics (geography hypothesis). The recent poverty profile of the Kyrgyz Republic demonstrates how poverty varies with geography and how it is affected by different household-level attributes.
