Abstract:

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, several Central Asian republics gained their independence, including the Republic of Uzbekistan. In addition to gaining independence, Uzbekistan also inherited a faltering command economy and an authoritarian political system. To improve economic and political conditions during the past ten years, the government of President Islam Karimov has instituted market reforms and permitted limited democratic participation. Furthermore, to support these reform efforts President Karimov has been arguing for the need to develop a western-style civil society.
