This work package is led by the Central Asia Institute for Strategic Studies in Almaty (CAISS) and by the Latvian Institute of International Affairs in Riga (LIIA). The aim of the work package is to develop the SEnECA Policy Roadmap for future priorities for EU policy-making towards Central Asia. This is done in a three-phase approach: Mapping (phase 1), Analysis (phase 2) and Recommendation (phase 3). For each phase, SEnECA publishes a series of policy papers, which outline the relevance of Central Asia for specific policy fields of the EU, the interconnectedness of both regions and Central Asian countries’ interests in cooperating with Europe. Each policy paper can be downloaded at this site.
It is time to review and renew our relationship, taking into account new geopolitical realities and the evolving needs and capacities of our Central Asian partners.
