Abstract

Currently, anti-extremist legislation, based on largely similar legal mechanisms, is in force in four post-Soviet countries - in Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. As will be shown below, this legislation and the law-enforcement practice based on it pose serious threats to fundamental freedoms and human rights, above all - freedom of expression and freedom of religion.
