American University of Central Asia - AUCA - Research in the department


Currently ICP (with the help of its students-interns) is developing two databases - one on political elites of Kyrgyzstan and the other on elections.

The Political Elite of Kyrgyzstan (PEK) consists currently of three sets of databases - Members of Parliament (1990-2011), Ministers (1990-2012), and Members of local councils (2012).

The Electoral database utilizes information published by the Central Election Commission of Kyrgyzstan and includes voter turnout, votes within and outside of the precinct building, votes against all, and and electoral results for all candidates. Currently two elections - presidential 2011 and local councils 2012, are being prepared. 

All of the above databases are under construction and will be posted soon.


The faculty of the department also does research which has practical releveance and publishes policy research papers. The first policy research paper is a about parliamentarism in Kyrgyzstan and it is available (below) in Russian language.
