Abstract

The article examines how professions are socially constructed in Kyrgyzstan, paying particular attention to the moral sentiments and organisational capabilities of people working in the professions. It is suggested that the moral sentiments approach captures the tensions and conflicts of post-Soviet Kyrgyzstani professions, and identifies how professional practices can become 'corrupt'. The article shows how professionals operate in difficult political and economic conditions, and how far they possess positive sentiments for effective action.
