Synopsis: After gaining independence, the young states of Central Asia
started political and socio-economic reforms with different levels of
enthusiasm. Since then, each has been trying to find its own way, the
path that is most appropriate to its socio-cultural and economic
features and also takes into account the realities of the contemporary
world. As a result, some states of the region are considered to have
been successful in conducting reforms - particularly economic ones -
while others have not been as successful. One of the main factors
determining this divergence in development levels is political
leadership. During his lecture, Professor Beshimov will share his
ideas and thoughts on possible scenarios for Central Asia's
development over the next 10 years.

Bio: Professor Bakyt Beshimov holds a Candidate of Historical Science

>From 2005 until 2008, he was Vice President for Academic Affairs of
