Central Asian Resource Centre (CARC)

Central Asian Resource Centre (CARC) was established in 2001 with funding from the Higher Education Support Program (HESP) of the Open Society Institute (OSI) together with the National Soros Foundations in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, who all act as the founders of the Centre. SPO is managing HESP's grant to CARC, and is providing managerial support and assistance in their initiatives.

The mission of the Central Asian Resource Center is to "aid the development of a common higher education space in the social sciences in Central Asian countries". CARC enhances core academic skills and knowledge of academics in sociology, political science, and history through bringing about content changes, introducing new teaching and assessment methods, providing access to both classical and modern fundamental publications, and forming academic networks.

Examples of activities in 2005 are:

  • Seminar 'Comparative Politics in Central Asia', American University in Central Asia, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, May 21-23, 2005
  • Seminar 'Culture and Health', American University in Central Asia, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, May 21-22, 2005
  • Central Asian Regional Seminar 'Political Institutions and Executives in Comparative Perspective', Almaty, Kazakhstan, November 25-29, 2005
  • Central Asian Regional Seminar 'Beyond Survey Sociology: Qualitative Methods of Research', Almaty, Kazakhstan, November 25-29, 2005
