I recently teamed up with Vasila Bozichaeva, higher education researcher and PhD candidate at the Academy of Sciences in Tajikistan to do an interview with The Diplomat on education in Central Asia.
In the interview, we cover everything from the idea of a university in Soviet times to how Tajikistan’s education system is coping with a booming youth population. Along the way, we discuss the impact of Covid-19 on education in Central Asia, privatization of higher education, gender issues, corruption, study abroad, and more.
