Abstract
This Research Note examines the evolution of the conflict in Tajikistan from February 1990 to the present. Regional, ethnic and clan divisions in Tajik society are identified as factors defining both the country's politics and the forces aligned in the civil war. The role of ouside powers, including Russia, local Afghan commanders and Tajikistan's Central Asian neighbours, is also explored. Finally, this Note reveals the motivation behind peace talks, and considers the likelihood of a near-term solution to the conflict.
