Abstract:This dissertation is a comparative analysis of state policymaking to advance women's status toward gender equality in Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan from 1995 to 2004. I show that the diffusion of international norms of gender equality caused the establishment of women's policy agencies (WPAs) in Central Asia and the subsequent development of national policy plans to promote women's rights. Yet the power of international norms to provoke deeper changes in state structures in Central Asia varied. Their differential effects were conditioned by pre-Soviet and Soviet historical legacies, changes in democratization, and the impact of Islam and nationalism. This dissertation uses the "most similar systems" research design and examines cases selected to represent a broad range of political systems from Central Asia. The research narrative is informed by the analysis of 85 interviews taken between 2003-2004 in Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan. My respondents were government officials, representatives of international organizations, women's NGOs, historians, researchers. Both Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan are trying simultaneously to build modern states—which imply some degree of acceptance of international norms regarding gender—and to create nationalist projects on behalf of those states. The latter implies a willingness to accommodate traditionalist and Islamist resistance to gender equity. While the global gender equality framework crossed the borders of these states, it was shaped and weakened by the domestic legacies, various degrees of authoritarian politics, and family practices based on Islamic norms.
