When: Friday, October 1, from 18:00

Where: Online

More: Life in the USSR was actually turned upside down by a package of reforms known as "perestroika", initiated by Mikhail Gorbachev in 1985. Central Asia was also expecting big changes, although some observers noted that some reforms in Central Asia were carried out slowly and hesitantly. There is no doubt that their cumulative impact has been transformative, fueling hope and anxiety both in the region and beyond.

Young Central Asians have actively taken advantage of new opportunities for discussion, criticism and entrepreneurship, questioning the confidence of a bygone era, as well as betting on political careers and nascent businesses. Some have even founded new political parties or movements. This roundtable invites two prominent personalities of that era - Davlat Khudonazarov and Zamira Sydykova - to share their experiences in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
