Posted April 21, 2004; 07:22 p.m.
A lecture on "Uzbekistan, Terrorism and the Values of U.S. Foreign Policy" is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 26, in 62 McCosh Hall.
Azizulla Gaziev, a visiting senior staff member at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies , will discuss the current friendly relations between the United States and the Karimov regime in Uzbekistan and their partnership in fighting the war on terror.
He will explore definitions of terrorism, the moral implications of the practice of supporting non-democratic and oppressive leaders both during the Cold War and today, and whether it is possible to define values toward which American foreign policy strives in the current period of international instability.
Pamela Bromley, a graduate student in Princeton's Department of Politics and a fellow at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies , will give a response to the talk. She specializes in international relations theory, non-governmental organizations and international aid.
While living in Uzbekistan, Gaziev worked on the Central Asia Project of the International Crisis Group and studied cultural, social and political factors that undermine peace and stability in the region. He is now working on a history of post-Soviet Uzbekistan.
The event is sponsored by the Human Values Forum of the University Center for Human Values .
