Interview with Swetlana Torno

The Central Asian Analytical Network (CAAN), a newly created platform to foster Central Asian citizens’ access to information, published an interview with Swetlana Torno on the role of Tajik women. Torno, who is Doctoral Candidate at the Cluster, defines the social category of Tajik women mainly by referring to their role within family. Both aspirations for studies, decisions on marriage and labor migration, she concludes, are to be analyzed in a broader socio-economic context to fully understand Tajik women’s individual and interpersonal challenges.
