“Central Asian NGOs should focus on building partnership relationships with those in the state with whom they share common goals, on their expert potential, and on becoming carriers of innovative practices that are of interest for all. In this way, civil society can find space, albeit limited, where the state accepts the role of NGOs in society. Instead of confronting the state with its failures, advocacy needs to seek out those counterparts in the state that have similar problems to solve, use innovation as a tool to build trust, and work with them as partners towards common goals.
