EUCAM fellow views
After their 3-month online fellowship with CESS, our Central Asian research fellows published their EUCAM commentaries. The three fellows worked around a common theme of gender issues in Central Asia. Begimai Bekbolotova wrote about ‘Emancipation or Back to the Kitchen? Gender and civil society in Kyrgyzstan’. Irina Kulikova’s commentary ‘Not safe at home: Covid-19 in Kyrgyzstan’ discussed domestic violence. Aizhan Erisheva’s ‘Out of the frying pan and into the fire: Kyrgyz women abroad’ discussed the difficult situation of Kyrgyz female labour migrants.
