In 1992, one year after independence, Tajikistan descended into a civil war. In 2005, Kyrgyzstan experienced the Tulip Revolution, which ended with the fall of an authoritarian leader. Both of these countries were born out of the dissolution of the USSR, and both of these events emerged out of anti-government protests. But why did these two states have such different outcomes? This paper analyzes the causes of these events, how they impacted the further development of political society in those states, and how those events impacted the development of state-society relations in the greater Central Asian region.
