Kyrgyzstan – ICG Report

The International Crisis Group has just issued a very interesting and informative report on Kyrgyzstan. It is a briefing document that outlines events in the country, including constitutional changes, since the so-called Tulip Revolution in 2005.

In particular, it focuses on events in the last year. It argues that democracy is in peril. In 2006 Kyrgyzstan had a Polity score of 4 and a Freedom House score of 4.5, both of which correspond to a Partly Free democracy.

I posted on Kyrgyzstan’s recent constitutional changes a while ago.
