Opposition in exile – Tajikistan before the presidential election

Radio broadcast [in German] of September 5 for Deutschlandfunk, including quotes from Tim Epkenhans, Professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Freiburg, and Muhiddin Kabiri, Chairman of the Islamic Renaissance Party.

Here’s an additional quote from Tim Epkenhans:

The economic shock caused by COVID-19 will be severe in Tajikistan. If migrant workers’ remittances are missed for long periods of time, this is likely to put Tajik society under a great deal of stress. And this in turn can lead to forms of political and social protest, which is actually the greater danger I see at the moment.
