Oxus International’s staff is well-versed in internationally recognized qualitative and quantitative research methodology. This includes conducting surveys, focus groups, structured interviews and more. In addition, we tailor our methodologies to specifically fit our clients’ research needs and budget.
Media Monitoring & Analysis
Beyond simply collecting and monitoring print and broadcast media outlets, Oxus International offers quantitative trending and analysis, “digitization” and translation of print/broadcast media, and media consumption research to give clients additional insight and context.
For international organizations looking to enter the Central Asian market, Oxus International conducts thorough research to provide analysis on targeted demographics, legislation for business registration, demand, and other valuable information for a successful transition to the region.
Extractive Industry Research
With the increasingly significant role that the extractive industries play on the economies of Central Asia, it is more important than ever to study how they impact the communities located near project sites. Using a blend of traditional sociological methodologies and qualitative participatory activities, Oxus International provides neutral, unbiased information on the social impacts of the extractive industries in Kyrgyzstan and beyond. This provides mining companies, international organizations, and local governments with the tools they need to make informed policy decisions and mitigate conflict and distrust among the population.
We specialize in conducting qualitative participatory activities, in which participants collaborate to create visual maps of events, stakeholders, community relations and conflicts. With these activities, the process is more revealing than the results.
Grant and Proposal Consulting
Our proposal managers and consultants are available to assist with a full range of proposal and grant development activities, such as writing and editing management plans, compliance matrices, teaming agreements, and creating compelling charts and graphics.
Monitoring & Evaluation
Oxus International uses accepted methods of measuring and evaluating the effectiveness of a program by collecting and analyzing data according to a set of predetermined criteria. M&E is a valuable process for discovering the impact of your program and how to improve it.
Oxus International has a wide network of contacts experienced with requesting public documents, finding or confirming information, and performing other acts of due diligence in all Central Asian countries, including Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Mongolia.
