The Majlis is back and this week takes a look at the last year in Uzbekistan, which was the first year with its new president, Shavkat Mirziyoev, leading the country.
Uzbekistan has definitely changed since Mirziyoev came to power, so this Majlis session reviewed some of those changes and some of the things that haven’t changed, as well the likely boundaries of reform in Uzbekistan.
Just back from vacation -- tan, rested, and ready -- Muhammad Tahir, RFE/RL's media relations manager, moderated the discussion.
From London, Alisher Ilkham of the School of Oriental and African Studies joined the talk, Our own Alisher Sidik, director of RFE/RL’s Uzbek Service, known locally as Ozodlik, also took part. And I kicked in a few comments.
