Since gaining independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, Kyrgyzstan’s democratic system has struggled for stability despite economic troubles, transitional governments, ethnic conflict, and political divides. The diverse religious, political, and ethnic identities in the country reflect the rich history and social mosaic of the region. Since 2011, SFCG has been working to promote a culture of tolerance and collaborative problem-solving in Kyrgyzstan. We work to transform perceptions of conflict and support reconciliation through innovative media, governance tools, and leadership dialogues.
