Anti-Extremist Policies in Russia, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan. Comparative Review
Members of the Civic Solidarity Platform Working Group on Counter-Terrorism, Anti-Extremism and Human Rights present a joint report on counter-extremism policies in Russia, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan.
The review has been prepared by:
- SOVA Center for Information and Analysis (Russian Federation),
- Public Association ‘Dignity’ (Republic of Kazakhstan),
- Bir Duino (Kyrgyz Republic),
- Office of Civil Freedoms (Republic of Tajikistan).
Russian approach to countering extremism has been adopted by several post-Soviet countries. To the greatest extent, this applies to Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan, both in their adoption of Russian legal innovations, and in the scale of their law enforcement activities. Accordingly, our report focuses on the experience of these four countries. We sought to draw attention to commonalities as well as differences in the regulatory framework and in the law enforcement dynamics.
