Hi, my name is Bermet Zhumakadyr kyzy, and I am from Kyrgyzstan. I graduated from the American University of Central Asia. My academic background is in politics with a focus on poverty reduction. I have worked for several organisations in and outside Central Asia such as Human Rights Watch and GIZ. Over the past year I have been pivoting towards the field of computer programming in seeking to connect technical and social sciences knowledge.

During my fellowship at EUCAM I will be exploring the privacy rights in Kyrgyzstan and investigate if there are European experiences useful to Kyrgyzstan.
