This digital project maps four key conflicts and instances of violence in Central Asia's Fergana Valley: the June 1989 Uzbek-Meskhetian Turk Clashes, 1990 Osh Conflict (Osh-Uzgen Riots), 2010 Osh Ethnic Conflict, and recent conflicts in 2021 and 2022 at the Kyrgyz-Tajik border. Each conflict is accompanied by a map demonstrating impacted areas, a description of the events, and various communications of brotherhood and "fraternity of the peoples" released in its aftermath. This project demonstrates the frequency of such discourse post-conflict and in general across the region, as well as its implications when it comes to peacebuilding, conflict resolution, and mass atrocity prevention.
