Uzbekistan, A Topic of Interest for International Conference on Constitutional Reform

International Conference on Uzbekistan’s Constitutional Reforms Attracts Top UK and International Commentators

With less than two weeks until a landmark constitutional referendum that will alter expectations for political reform throughout Central Asia, international interest has peaked with a major conference that took place on 17-18 April in Tashkent, featuring former Polish President Alexander Kwasniewski, former Slovenian President Borut Pahor, a UK delegation featuring Lord James Wharton as well as MPs Sir Gavin Williamson and Alun Cairns, and European Conservatives’ Secretary General Tom Van Dijck, among other dignitaries from around the globe.

The rule of law, travel, housing, and other norms aimed at improving people’s lives serve to significantly increase the standard of living of the population in Uzbekistan
