  • Civil Society rating declined from 1.50 to 1.25 due to the imposition of state control of international funding of local NGOs through obligatory assignment of “national partners” from government bodies. Moreover, violent crackdown of peaceful protests in the autonomous Republic of Karakalpakstan further restricted the freedom of assembly.

As a result, Uzbekistan’s Democracy Score declined from 1.25 to 1.21.
