Dear Reader,

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.

Central Asian Voices Portal


24 Jan 2007

Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Washington DC, US

Supplied note:
"The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace announced the launch [on 17 Jan 2007 - ed.] of the Central Asian Voices Portal -- a web site featuring timely analysis of regional issues, and a forum enabling the exchange of ideas among policymakers, analysts, journalists, bloggers, and informed readers across the globe.

Written in English and Russian, Central Asian Voices consistently features top stories from the region, and currently showcases such topics as: the appointment of the new Kazakh government and the prospects for political change in Uzbekistan. The Portal will also provide links to official primary source documents, and analysis of the regional and geopolitical implications of current events. One of the Portal's unique features is its compilation of blogs and media resources from Central Asia, enabling visitors to view press coverage from the region and read first-hand accounts of life in Central Asia from its burgeoning civil society. This direct access to the opinions and perspectives of Central Asians marks a new development in a region often characterized by government-controlled media and a lack of openness. - dz."
