TA Results in removal of Negative Provisions from the draft law on the Public Foundations 
Through technical assistance provided by ICNL the drafters of this law have deleted provisions 
harmful to NGOs.  The two month registration period was changed to one month, and the number of 
founders was decreased so that a single physical person may found a public foundation.  ICNL's 
technical assistance has included full and comprehensive hearings held in a round table format on 
June 6, 2003 dedicated to the discussion of the legal basis of the activities of public foundations as 
one of the legal and organizational forms of NGOs by the Subcommission on issues of civil society 
institutions, mass media, protection of citizens' rights and freedoms of the Oliy Majlis of the Republic 
of Uzbekistan.  The structure of the round table divided especially into two parts: international 
experience of regulation of foundations, presented by Vsevolod Ovcharenko, ICNL expert, followed 
by an article by article discussion of the draft law on Public Foundations. The draft law is now 
moving through the Oliy Majlis and was adopted after the first reading during the 11
