Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

NBCentralAsia - Central Asian News Agency


13 Sep 2006

Institute for War & Peace Reporting (IWPR), London, UK

Supplied note:
"A project of the London-based international media-assistance group the Institute for War & Peace Reporting (IWPR), NBCentralAsia offers a new concept in regional reporting, which comprises analysis and 'news behind the news', covering Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. Drawing on an extensive network of more than 100 experts and commentators throughout the region, NBCentralAsia reports on regional politics, economics and social trends, offering original perspectives and the context and meaning often hidden by the headlines. [...] The service launches [in Sep 2006] with an initial pilot phase, featuring a daily output of around four stories, in Russian and English. The agency - based in Bishkek, with a regional office in Dushanbe and international assistance from IWPR - is staffed by an experienced network of journalists and editors drawing on a broad range of regional specialists. NBCentralAsia reports are available for syndication to local and international media outlets free of charge. The initiative, supported by the US Department of State's Department for Human Rights and Labor, seeks to provide independent regional perspectives to strengthen local print and electronic media throughout Central Asia. The agency will be seeking to expand the daily output, and to incorporate Uzbekistan into its coverage, in the near future. To access the articles, see www.iwpr.net or www.NBCentralAsia.net. Reports are also available via email subscription and RSS feeds. IWPR continues to produce its long-standing regional flagship, Reporting Central Asia, providing in-depth reporting and human rights coverage, and its Turkmen radio program, Inside View.
