Exploring the links between injustice and violence in Kyrgyzstan

Osh, Kyrgyzstan is still working through some of the structural drivers of the 2010 conflict that destroyed 2,677 buildings, displaced 80,000 people, and left approximately 500 people dead.

US efforts to combat terrorism in Somalia and Yemen have badly backfired, and both countries urgently require strategies that are less reliant on military approaches.
