Roza Otunbayeva, President of Kyrgyzstan (2010-11)



Following the presidential election in October 2011, many of Kyrgyzstan’s old problems returned to the fore. Much needed economic development is complicated by continuing inter-ethnic tensions as well as difficult relations with other states in the region. Former president Roza Otunbayeva will discuss the challenges facing Kyrgyzstan today and likely future developments.
