Closed by the government

Tashkent Women's Resource Center (TWRC) has closed operations under pressure from the Uzbek government. The request to close down was issued by the Ministry of Justice immediately following the 2005 WLP-TWRC August 2005 Central Asia Institute for Women's Leadership and Training of Trainers. TWRC's fate is shared by many national and international non-governmental organizations in Uzbekistan as the government implements a wave of forced closures. International organizations subject to forced closure in 2006 include the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Freedom House, and the Eurasia Foundation. WLP will continue to work with partners in the Central Asia region to advance women's human rights and development.
