Call for Papers: Central Asian Affairs

The Central Asia Program is excited to announce the launch of a new journal,  Central Asian Affairs. Central Asian Affairs is a peer-reviewed journal that is published three times per year. It aims to feature innovative social science research on contemporary developments in the wider Central Asian region and raise the standards of scholarship for Central Eurasian Studies. For more information on submitting a manuscript click here.

The Central Asia Program at IERES has been awarded a $270,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation’s Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion & International Affairs.  The grant will support a new Central Eurasia – Religion in International Affairs (CERIA) initiative. CERIA aims to become a platform of knowledge on religion in the wider Central Asian region, and will investigate religion as a 'societal shaper' that has broader implications in shaping politics, security, economy, nation-building and culture. Using this approach, CERIA hopes to contribute to a broader discussion on the role of religion in international affairs. 

 

PONARS Eurasia hosted a panel of experts to discuss Russia's annexation of Crimea and the Ukrainian reaction on March 21.
