Since the U.S. launched its Central Asia strategy in February 2020, momentous changes have taken place. The U.S. left Afghanistan, new leadership in Kyrgyzstan, and the recent unrest in Kazakhstan are only the most significant examples. Meanwhile, tensions over Ukraine dominate the U.S. foreign policy agenda. While Central Asia should be part of U.S. strategic thinking, it does not seem to be. Against this background, the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute convened a forum to discuss how U.S. Central Asia Strategy can be improved in light of these circumstances.
