News Digest on Migration in Central Asia No 1

 

Date: February 5-10, 2012

 

 

Dear Reader,

 

I would like to thank you all for your valuable feedback and suggestions on donor organizations, as well as your ideas on improving the format of News Digests.

 

Taking into account the importance and usefulness of digests, noted by you in your feedback, we will now start issuing the News Digests that only include the title and source of the news until we find a sponsor to produce a more open format. The news can be translated from English into Russian and from Russian into English with the help of online dictionaries (http://translate.google.com/).

 

The Digests are compiled within the newly created Tian Shan Policy Center at the American University of Central Asia, Kyrgyzstan.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ainura Asamidinova
