Central Asia Digest Nr. 11

von Thomas Kunze


The eleventh issue of the Russian and Persian language publication digest on regional security challenges in Central Asia. This issue focusses upon several important trends, which may determine the balance of power and shape the political, economic, linguistic and demographic situation in the region in 2019.

In the eleventh issue we shall examine Washington’s renewed historical attempt to build a foothold for its long-term political, military and economic presence in Central Asia; China’s potential dividends from the coupling of the “One Belt, One Road” initiative; the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU); and directing Chinese investments in the Eurasian integration processes. In addition, this issue of the digest shall touch upon Central Asian labour migration, economic liberalisation in Uzbekistan, the emigration of Slavs from Kazakhstan, and key trends in the Kazakh linguistic field.
The views and opinions of the authors do not necessarily reflect the position of the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation.
