A teleconference on the actors vying for influence in Central Asia.
This teleconference will explore the competition for influence in Central Asia between the United States, China, and Russia. Given the EU’s plans to adopt a Central Asia strategy in 2019, we will examine the economic power struggle in the region, the motivations for each player’s engagement, and how the EU’s strategic entry may impact the balance of power between nations.
What will the EU's Central Asia strategy mean for the region?
