Central Asia: Changes in Progress?


After 26 years of authoritarian rule, Uzbekistan's President Islam Karimov died in early September, leaving no clear succession plan in place. Against a backdrop of intense pressure on Central Asian economies amid low oil and gas prices, Karimov's death raises questions about the stability of the country and the wider region.

 

Key themes
    • Security implications: how is Karimov's death likely to affect the short-term security situation?
    • Succession scenarios: how will the post-Karimov era look in Uzbekistan? Will conditions for foreign business change?
    • Economic pressures: what do regional governments' efforts to diversify their economies mean for business?
