of Ministers, judges, and other government agencies to help them interpret legislative provisions 
governing NGOs. Work has been completed on the first stage of the project: preparing detailed 
comparative analysis of terminology of the acts on NNO.  At the present time, the working group is 
preparing the initial working variant of a glossary (in Russian) and will present it to LIRC's council of 
experts. The glossary will then be sent for an examination to ICNL and OSCE who will review it, and 
issue commentaries, if necessary. 
ICNL Holds A Series of Seminars on Social Partnerships 
In response to government plans in Uzbekistan to develop a law governing social partnerships (a 
broad term encompassing relationships between government, business, and NGOs) ICNL conducted a 
series of roundtables throughout Uzbekistan from April to June. The 13 roundtables occurred in each 
of the 12 oblasts of Uzbekistan and the Republic of Karakalpakstan. A final summary roundtable will 
take place on July 3, 2002 in the City of Tashkent to discuss conclusions from these 13 roundtables 
and to present government with the recommendations on social partnerships stemming from these 
roundtables for incorporation into any proposed law or regulation. Currently a draft Law on 
Guaranties and Support for NGOs is being developed by the Oliy Majlis. The roundtables were 
organized jointly by the Oliy Majlis, National Human Rights Center, ICNL, Open Society Institute, 
Counterpart, and INTRAC, with financial assistance from DFID (British Embassy). Each roundtable 
brought together state officials, senior executives from state and privately owned companies, 
international and local NGOs, and legal practitioners. The roundtables were an important step for 
establishing contacts and collaboration between the sectors. Prior to these roundtables, ICNL 
conducted a training of trainers (TOT) on social partnership issues. The training was conducted by 
ICNL Program Advisor Caroline Newman. As a result of the TOT, participants learned about the 
principal types of social partnerships (grants, subsidies, state contracting, and public participation in 
the government decision making process).As follow up, ICNL is planning to continue this program by 
conducting an additional training of trainers (TOT) on the social partnerships program in Tashkent for 
all staff of OSI and the Counterpart support center.
