The Office of the President of the Kyrgyz Republic (“the Office”) is in charge of strategic policy-making, as well as monitoring policy implementation by the executive government and non-governmental organisations. PeaceNexus has been working with the Office since 2018 to support the inclusive development of the Kyrgyz Jarany Civic Identity Concept.
The Kyrgyz Jarany Concept, which was signed by the acting president in November 2020, sets the strategic direction for 2021-2026 and aims to strengthen the unity and diversity of the Kyrgyz people through a shared and inclusive civic identity. The adoption of the concept, despite political upheaval and the COVID-19 crisis, was possible due to strong collaboration and trust between key stakeholders, as well as the leadership of the Department for Monitoring Humanitarian Development and Interaction with Civil Society Institutions, run by the Office of the President.
In 2021, we will support the Academy of State Management under the President of the Kyrgyz Republic in designing and piloting training materials on the Kyrgyz Jarany Concept to ensure its effective implementation by government and municipal officials.
