Free, downloadable PDF files are available below.


In this study, the authors share their assessments and views of the current geopolitical and geo-economic state of Central Eurasia and of the possible ways both the entire region and the individual countries belonging to it might develop. They re-examine many well-known theoretical constructs and offer a new concept, "Central Caucaso-Asia." Understanding that many of the issues raised in this study are essentially disputable, the authors welcome a constructive and substantive debate on the topic.
