EUCACIS Online Paper No. 4: Gulzana Kurmanalieva – Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan: Endless Border Conflicts

Gulzana Kurmanalieva analyses the situation of scarcity of pastures and water in the trans-boundary region of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan which leads to interethnic tensions and a non-sustainable use of resources. The paper argues that the lack of institutional arrangements leads to unequal pasture and water access and use in the region, and gives recommendations on how to contribute to a solution of the conflicts.
