Constructive dialogues on religion and democracy in Kyrgyzstan evaluations

These summaries are internal mid-term and final evaluations that assess our work to promote understanding and tolerance by providing space for interaction and dialogue between groups in Kyrgyzstan.

The Constructive dialogues on religion and democracy project was implemented between February 2017 and January 2020. It aimed to develop tolerance and non-violence among young people and facilitate dialogue between the government and civil society as well as religious and secular experts to advocate for wider, safer spaces for discussions on the role of religion in Kyrgyzstan, and how it can peacefully exist within a democratic context and within the conditions of a secular state.

Theses evaluations compare the outcomes achieved against the project proposal documents, records the strengths and weaknesses of the project implementation, assess the project impact in relation to the theory of change and the local context of secular-religious dialogue, makes recommendations and outlines lessons learned for future work.
