Commentary:

Since gaining independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, the country has experienced political instability and ethnic unrest, with two major civil conflicts: the Tulip Revolution of 2005 and the Kyrgyz Revolution of 2010. The growing discontent resulted in an inter-ethnic conflict between the majority Kyrgyzand minority Uzbeks, leaving over 400 casualties and hundreds of wounded. The conflict has had distinct gendered impacts, with women subjected to sexual violence, humiliation,and extortion as well as experiencing social stigma as survivors of sexual violence. 

 

Civil Society:

The NAP  states that ministries, state committees, local state administrations, and local governments must “take measures to implement the National Action Plan with participation of representatives of civil society, international and non-profit organisations". However, the NAP does not specify details about civil society inclusion in the implementation of the action plan.

 

Women in Peacekeeping:

The NAP briefly mentions the goal of training women for leadership roles in local councils and local government bodies.
