Abstract: Olcott examined how democratic institutions have been slow to take root in the states of Central Asia, but in recent years only the Kyrgyz have taken to the street in large numbers to oust their rulers. She will examine the questions: What are the prospects of social upheaval in the other countries? Is there strong support for secular democratic ideals? Are religious groups a dominant social force in most countries? Do the models of democratic transition that have been applied in the region for the past 20 years still apply?
