New Russia's Strategic Choice: Regionalisation versus Globalisation
This publication examines the main factors which dictate Russia's interest in Central Asia and its strategic options from a global perspective. The authors argue that the policy of full-blooded globalization during the late 1990s was incompatible with effective integration in most of the post-Soviet space. They conclude that developing a regionalized economy with Central Asia is Russia's only option, particularly as a basis for developing Siberia and the Russian Far East.
