Politics and Contested Transformations in Central Asia
Sally Cummings, Professor of International Relations, University of St Andrews
The five Central Asian states, although increasingly diverse, have faced similar challenges since gaining independence in 1991. Legacy of the past, economic issues, national identity and religion have all had significant impact on their transformation.
Sally Cummings will discuss the role of these factors in the development of the Central Asian states' domestic political environment over the past twenty years and their importance in the short- to medium-term future.
