Show Notes

USIP and the Oxus Society for Central Asian Affairs hosted a conversation that attempted to pierce the veil of secrecy around recent events in Central Asia. A panel of scholars discussed how they view recent protests and tried to understand more broadly why governments in the region are suddenly struggling to keep things under control.
