The International Public Foundation "Roza
Otunbayeva Initiative" has conducted a study on the activities of
aksakals' courts in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The study aimed to assess the current situation and
practices of aksakals' courts, their interaction with key stakeholders at
national and local levels, and their handling of cases.
The research report provides a detailed
description of aksakals' courts' activities, their portrait, patterns,
relevance, effectiveness, and sustainability, interaction with other public
bodies and institutions, and gender sensitivity.
The study was initiated due to the uncertainty of
the status of aksakals' courts, legal gaps and conflicts, lack of reliable
information on the number of active aksakals' courts, disagreements about their
competence and role in adjudicating gender-related cases, and low
representation of women.
You can find out the detailed results of the study and

The research report presentation will take place
on April 11, 2023, at 14:00.
