Central Asia PEN is currently busy with their third summer school on freedom of expression in the Central Asian region. The project aims to promote civil discourse in education, raise awareness on human rights and encourage critical thinking amongst the youth. The event invited students from Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, and the three-day session is taking place by the lake Issyk-Kul in Kyrgyzstan. As a part of the PEN Civil Society Programmes the event receives funding from SIDA, the Swedish International Development Agency.
