Central Asia

IWPR has been working with reporters, editors and rights groups across the five Central Asian states for more than a decade.

We currently have three projects – one region-wide, one focusing on Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, and another in Tajikistan. Overall, this programming seeks to strengthen accurate, balanced reporting and to strengthen the links between media and human rights groups.
