Central Asia

Call for papers: “The “Post” and the “Past” in Central Asia’s Future”

“The “Post” and the “Past” in Central Asia’s Future” Conference 14-15 March 2014, Hosted by Cambridge Central Asia Forum & Centre for Development Studies University of Cambridge, UK Call for Papers  We are delighted to announce a call for papers for a conference titled The “Post” and the “Past” in Central Asia’s Future to be held in Cambridge, UK in mid-March 2014. We welcome contributions from scholars working on Central Asia, Inner Asia, the Caucuses and contiguous Asian and European regions Individual academic disciplines have specific designs for choosing methodologies and time frames and consequently generate specific perspectives on research problems. The application of these many and varied perspectives in a given geographical region can result in a bewildering array of understandings regarding practices or events. The extensive literature generated on Central Asia across a number of disciplines shows considerable evidence of the difficulties involved in identifying the relations between continuous and discontinuous factors operating in the region. The continuities and discontinuities identified by each academic discipline result in a specific configuration of Central Asia and when taken together in a multi-disciplinary framework may generate a more holistic understanding of the historical and contemporary trajectory of the region. Such a multi-disciplinary approach would be based on a reconfiguration of the particular forms of defining, dealing with and even instituting differences, distinctions and borders, within both the objects and method of study. The individual papers and panels will examine the implications of continuities and discontinuities within the spheres of literature, religion, education, politics, society and economy to investigate the manner in which the ready translations in academic disciplines map onto the more perplexing movements such as those between tradition and modernity, nationalism and cosmopolitanism, industrialisation and the environment, the market and the state and the citizen and the nation. Deadline for abstracts : 30 January 2014 and full papers are due 10 March 2014 to be considered for further publication. Please send your abstracts and inquiries to dk406@cam.ac.uk  (Diana T.

The Institutional Persistence of Patrimonialism in the Kyrgyz Republic: Testing a Path Dependency (1991-2010)

Ruiz Ramas, Rubén (2013), The Institutional Persistence of Patrimonialism in the Kyrgyz Republic: Testing a Path Dependency (1991-2010), in Ahrens, Joachim and Hoen, Herman W.(eds), Institutional Reform in Central Asia: Politico-Economic Challenges, London: Routledge. 129-152.

Abstract:

Building on the literature of the historical institutionalism (HI), the chapter’s hypothesis stems on the persistence of a patrimonial communism (Kitschelt et al., 1999), as the main independent variable. That influence while not having prevented formal institutional change, has brought the real functioning of the Kyrgyz institutions closer to a modern neo-patrimonial regime (Eisenstadt 1978, Ilkhamov 2007), rather than in the direction of a liberal democratic one.
