Further to my post last month, I’m delighted to announce that my article, Challenges in contemporary higher education in Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia has been published online in the peer-reviewed journal Perspectives: policy and practice in higher education. A link to read the article can be found below and on my Academia.edu profile.
My warm thanks go to the participants for their willingness to be interviewed, and to Norma Jo Baker and in particular to Jyldyz Doolbekova for their assistance in identifying participants.
On a personal note, I dedicate this article to my grandma Peggy Wolfson, who died peacefully aged 92 on 20 February 2015. Whilst she never made it to Central Asia, she enjoyed travelling widely during her life and equally relished the opportunity to meet and get to know people from all over the world from her home in the UK. My family and I are part of a global group of people who will truly miss this wonderful person.
