WHAT WE DO

Crossroads Central Asia supports, promotes and practices professional research and analysis for the purpose of open, secure and prospering Central Asia

SURVEYS AND FOCUS GROUPS

Solid data is a basis for a solid policy. Crossroads’ network includes teams of excellent sociologists with extensive experience in conducting surveys, focus groups and in-depth interviews. The team members have extensive record of delivering top quality research services to key international development agencies.

POLICY ANALYSIS

casa2

Politics and policies are in flux in Central Asia. This region has not emerged yet from the mode of an empire’s periphery which was free of politics and policies. Both policy-makers and citizens at large need to adopt doing politics and policies on the basis of critical thinking and comprehensive analysis. Crossroads seeks to support this.

MONITORING AND EVALUATION

External intervention has thus far had a positive connotation in Central Asia, referring to support and advice of donors more than anything else. But what has to be done and how for such support to benefit those who need most and in ways that make sense? Crossroads is here to support all parties seeking advice on these questions through data and analysis.

CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Civic education is critically important for long-term societal development. Active civic participation requires education of today’s and tomorrow’s citizens on better ways to engage on matters of governance in their societies. Crossroads is keen to support skill-building and networking among students, professionals and a broader community of civic leaders.
