Within the framework of its comprehensive Anti-Trafficking Programme, the Centre in Tashkent assists Uzbek law enforcement agencies in their efforts to control illicit trafficking of small arms and light weapons as well as in human beings. In its targeted project work, it seeks to support the Uzbek authorities in meeting their commitments which were set in important OSCE anti-trafficking documents such as the Document on Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) and the OSCE Action Plan on Trafficking in Human Beings.
Combating trafficking in small arms and light weapons (SALW)
Since 2002, the Centre in Tashkent has trained Uzbek border guards and customs officers in order to enhance their professional capacities in searching, tracing and seizing illegally trafficked SALW in the region, in examining forged travel and customs documents as well as in raising their awareness of internationally accepted rules and regulations in border management. The following training sessions were held so far:
• Termez-Hayraton cross border training conducted in 2002 jointly with the UN Resident Coordinator in Uzbekistan;
• three-month follow-up in Termez and at other border crossing points in autumn 2003;
• three-week training in Ferghana, Samarkand and Urgench in March/April 2004;
• ten-day training of customs officers in Austria in May 2004; and
• four-week training session in Nukus, Bukhara and Tashkent in October/November 2004.
Trafficking in human beings
Trafficking in human beings was identified and then officially recognized in 2003 as a new phenomenon in Uzbekistan. Since then, the government has made a number of positive steps in combating trafficking in human beings, supported by the civil society and the international community.
Being supportive of government's actions and in line with the OSCE Action Plan to Combat Trafficking in Human Beings, the Centre in Tashkent initiated and developed a comprehensive anti-trafficking programme. In a series of training sessions, it raises awareness and trains local civil society representatives, law enforcement officials and journalists. The Centre in Tashkent supported the establishment of an anti-trafficking unit.
The Centre in Tashkent monitors the economic situation in Uzbekistan and assists the Uzbek Government to address economic challenges. It raises awareness on the need for sustainable economic development. Furthermore it facilitates contacts and promotes information exchange on economic matters with local authorities, universities, research institutions and NGOs.
Raising awareness of entrepreneurs' rights
To increase the legal awareness of Uzbekistan's entrepreneurs and to protect their rights and interests, the Centre in Tashkent in co-operation with the Supreme Economic Court of Uzbekistan launched a series of television shows entitled "Entrepreneurs and the Law".
The shows focus on economic and judicial reforms being carried out in the country, as well as on current legislation regulating entrepreneurial and farming activities. Cases of successful protection of entrepreneurs' rights were shown to promote public confidence in their ability to engage in entrepreneurial activity.
Promoting development of small and medium enterprises (SME):
To enhance entrepreneurs' access to information on SME legislation, the Centre in Tashkent and the Chamber of Trade and Industry drafted a handbook on "Modern Trends of Business Development in Uzbekistan".
Through its targeted project work, the Centre in Tashkent promotes the development of sustainable SMEs. To promote entrepreneurial skills among the youth and women, it conducts a series of training events and supports an SME Information Centre
In the field of environment protection, the main priority of the Centre in Tashkent is to enhance public participation. In this context, the Centre strives to address good governance issues, to implement the OSCE Strategy Document for the Economic and Environmental Dimension and to take up relevant initiatives of the Uzbek Government.
Furthering environmental protection in Mahallas (local community organizations)
The Centre in Tashkent supports local community organizations in their efforts to enhance environmental protection. At roundtables, Mahalla leaders are briefed about Uzbekistan's environmental legislation, introduced to the institutions handling environmental issues, and encouraged to co-operate with civil society representatives and government agencies on environmental protection issues.
Promotion of environmental legal advocacy
To increase public participation in the environmental decision-making process, the Centre in Tashkent provides support to the environmental non-governmental organization (NGO) "Armon". Armon conducts seminars to address environmental problems in provinces, identifies potential local leaders for grassroots initiatives and reaches out to the media to increase public participation in environmental protection issues. In addition, it provides free legal consultations and maintains a database on environmental information.
Through its Media Programme, the Centre in Tashkent plans to contribute substantially to media development in Uzbekistan as well as to the promotion and protection of freedom of the media.
Improving media legislation
The Centre in Tashkent promotes full compliance with OSCE principles and commitments regarding freedom of expression and freedom of media by providing legal expertise to streamline media-related legislation with international norms and standards.
Furthering professional development
The Centre in Tashkent supports Uzbek journalists by offering training to improve professional knowledge and practical skills and by disseminating handbooks on international media standards.
Facilitating access to information
To further public debate among all layers of society and to increase the accessibility of government institutions for journalists, the Centre in Tashkent organizes a series of roundtables and seminars for press secretaries and journalists. Since 2003, it maintains a Tashkent-based Internet cafe for journalists to provide free Internet services and access to information.
Providing legal assistance
Since 2003, the Centre in Tashkent supports a Legal Clinic for Journalists. A pool of local experts in the field of law and media affairs provides legal assistance to individual journalists and editors who seek legal advice and wish to receive free legal support and representation in court.
Emerging security concerns brought up by the Uzbek authorities are being addressed by the Center's targeted project work. Preventing and combating terrorism, increasing border security and advancing military-civilian relations are key issues of the Centre's work in the field of security co-operation. Within the framework of a developing long-term partnership with the Uzbek law enforcement agencies, the Centre aims to strengthen the capacities of these agencies to meet Uzbekistan's obligations. It also strives to build confidence within the OSCE's comprehensive approach to security and conflict prevention.
Facilitating the implementation of OSCE commitments
The OSCE Code of Conduct on Politico-Military Aspects of Security and the Vienna Document 1999 set the foundation for Uzbekistan's defence and security commitments. In the Bucharest Plan of Action, OSCE participating States pledged to become party to all 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism by the end of 2002, if possible, and to review national legislation and compliance with relevant international legal obligations. In co-operation with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and OSCE field operations, technical workshops offering advice and assistance on the implementation of resolution 1373, as well as the 12 international anti-terrorism agreements are provided.
Preventing and combating terrorism
In accordance with the Bucharest and Bishkek Plans of Action, the Centre in Tashkent started to develop a long-term programme to assist Uzbekistan in preventing and combating terrorism. Within its Counter-Terrorism Programme, the Centre seeks to facilitate the involvement of external experts in projects designed at the request of Uzbek authorities and aimed at sharing expertise and best practices in the field of preventing and combating terrorism.
