The Influence of Civil Society on the Human Development Process in Kyrgyzstan


The National Human Development Report (NHDR) 2005 is devoted to analysis of how civil society mechanisms influence human capacity development in Kyrgyzstan. The NHDR 2005 is based on a functional approach, the idea being that activities of civil society as an independent and important element for society as a whole are best identified through its actual, specific and exclusive functions.
