This paper takes a look at the widespread and blatant corruption found in Central Asia. Found from the highest levels of politics to the administrations of local schools, the paper discusses why corruption is prevalent in countries such as Uzbekistan and Turkestan. Places and instances where corruption is commonly found such as patrolled borders, businesses and school administrative systems are also examined. The author attributes poverty as the main reason for the widespread corruption and states that until intervention occurs, these countries in Central Asia can only live with their current situation. This paper does not include a works cited page but does include MLA style footnotes.
From the Paper:"Patrolling borders is important work for any country, as it entails trying to stop illegal products from entering the country, protecting the citizens from people wanting to harm the country or people, keeping track of foreigners in the country, and much more, but this is not quite the case in places like Uzbekistan and Turkestan. Since the establishment of the Central Asian countries' borders, the people of these countries have become extremely patriotic to their country, although they traveled freely between areas before the borders were in place."
