Volume 1: Conceptualising Civil Society in Uzbekistan – T. Dadabaev, S. S. Saxena and G. Abdukarimov (eds)
This volume aims to initiate discussion of civil society models through the case study of Uzbekistan and to increase and diversify understanding of the dynamics of the development of civil society in a global context. The authors present a review of policy directions and the aspirations of a variety of Uzbek governance structures through academic analysis of a range of relevant issues. The volume is structured in three parts:
Part 1: Theorising civil society
Part 2: Empirical: Case study of Uzbekistan
Part 3: International context
and it provides a platform to discuss and formulate understanding and advice that is relevant and far-reaching rather than merely prescriptive.
