5th Interdisciplinary Central Asia Day - 7 December 2018

New Tendencies in and around Central Asia: Domestic Developments, Regional Cooperation and External Relations


Central Asian states are undergoing diverse developments.  

The Fifth Central Asia Day will be dedicated (but not limited) to discussion of following questions:


- What are the current developments in the Central Asian states? Are there new challenges and opportunities in terms of power strategies, institutional development, state-society relations, and peace and security?


- Are we really witnessing a revival of regional integrationist processes in Central Asia? What are the possible perspectives for ongoing active regional dialog and cooperation?  


- What are the possible implications of current developments in Central Asia for their relations with external players (especially China, Russia and the EU)?


We invite all interested scholars to present on these and other related topics. Please submit an abstract of a maximum of 300 words for a 15 minute presentation and a short academic bio (2-3 sentences), including contact details, by November 11, 2018. For more information read here.
