A landlocked Central Asian republic bordering Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and China, Tajikistan is recovering from a civil war that affected the country between 1992 and 1997. While officially a democratic republic, in practice it is a one-party State whose elections fail to meet international standards and where the same president has ruled since 1994. In addition to suppression of opposition by government forces and strict limitations on civil and political rights, Tajikistan also has major problems associated with economic rights and its status as the poorest State in Central Asia, including child labour and human trafficking, alongside large numbers of orphans and discrimination against women and girls.
