Professor Bill Bowring, visit to Kyrgyzstan on 9-13 March

Notes for the British Embassy

The focus of my visit was Freedom of Religious Belief (FORB in the FCO abbreviation).

In this context I had meeting with representatives of international organisations, civil society, journalists, advocates, parliamentarians, and representatives of law enforcement and security bodies.

I also attended and spoke at the “Central Asian ulemma forum on using ideology to combat extremism and terrorism” organised by Search For Common Ground (SFCG).
