Tag Archives: Study in Tajikistan

Located in the heart of Asia, Tajikistan is a country with strong ethnic individualities, forced to find an almost impossible coexistence within the artificial borders resulting from the imperialist interests of the Soviet giant. A Persian heart confined within an area with a clear Turkish prevalence, the country was the protagonist of a dramatic breakdown in the aftermath of the disintegration of the USSR, dotted with a high number of victims, caused by a civil war with a disastrous outcome, and by hundreds of refugees. Protected by the most majestic mountains of the Central Asian area, crossed by the suggestive roads that run along the Pamir mountains or that wind along the so-called Vakhān corridor, Tajikistan has been for almost a century at the center of what has gone down in history as the Great Game (as the British called it and what a great echo it had thanks to the diffusion it gave the writer R. Kipling) or the “Tournament of Shadows” (as it was called by the Russians instead). Placed in the confluence area between the two great empires, Tajikistan saw, in fact, the tactical antagonism of the two powers consumed on its territory and on its isolated mountains, respectively intent on garrisoning the hub outposts for connections with the British possessions in India and to expand along the mountain ranges of the Afghan region to gain Russian access to the way to the south of the continent. Shaken by foreign interests and by the claims of the various ethnic groups perched among the inaccessible valleys, today the country, despite the regained political autonomy, has not yet definitively recovered from the condition of widespread poverty, from the economic dependence on foreign countries and from the monetary loans of the Russian government. Even the construction of a Tajik identity is a process far from over, despite the flourishing past linked to the splendors of ancient Persia constituting a source of pride and common ground on which to try to re-establish both a cultural and national identity. Another destabilizing element, in a region that still seems far from having identified clear lines of development and shared equilibrium, is the centrality that the country plays in clandestine drug trafficking worldwide. According to COUNTRYAAH, Tajikistan is a nation in Central Asia, the capital city of which is Dushanbe. The latest population of Tajikistan is 9,537,656.

GEOGRAPHY
The country is mainly mountainous and reaches 7495 m in the Peak of Communism (pik Ismail Samani); the Pamir ranges to the SE frequently reach 5000-6000 m. The regions of the N host the latest western foothills of the system Tian Shan, from which they differ, the chain of ‘ Alaj (Alajskij Hrebet) and mountains of Turkestan Western (Turkestanskij Hrebet) and Zerafshan (Zeravšanskij Hrebet). The main rivers, which affect the country only marginally, are the Syrdarīya and the Amudar’ja (to which they pay, among others, the Zeravšan, the Kafirnigan and the Vahš), which both flow into the Aral Sea. There are numerous lake basins, and torrential watercourses fed by glaciers; on the other hand, irrigation works are necessary in the valley floor to favor crops. Tajikistan is in an active seismic zone and is prone to earthquakes. The climate, of a continental type, varies according to the altitude; rainfall is scarce, concentrated in the western sector of the country. The highest areas have alpine climatic conditions, with strong temperature variations (the averages are -10 ° C in January, but can reach -50 ° C, and 15 ° C in July); in the valley the conditions are more favorable.
