The forgotten dictatorship

Uzbekistan is a country of double standards. Lying between the Caucasus and China, its impressive landscape, its beautiful historical sites and rich cultural traditions - formed during periods of Turko-Persian, Islamic, Mongolian and Russian dominance - go hand in hand with the present-day authoritarian regime of President Karimov. During his twenty year rule, child labour, torture, disappearances and media censorship have flourished. Beyond attention to the country for strategical interests such as large gas reserves, military bases and the access it provides to Afghanistan, Uzbekistan is largely ignored by the rest of the world.

Did you for instance know that cotton from Uzbekistan is some of the best there is? Did you know that young children are employed to pick the cotton for the t-shirt you may be wearing?

On Saturday 7 November we want to offer you a window on Uzbekistan. Writers, poets and journalists will light your way with their inspiration and real life stories. Round table discussions and lively talk shows with Dutch politicians and experts will provide an opportunity to ask questions and get answers on this forgotten dictatorship. Films and documentaries will be shown non-stop and there will be photos, music and a collection of books.
