The China and Eurasia Forum Quarterly Vol 7, No 4
This issue analyzes the role played by the EU during the Spanish Presidency in relation to Central Asia; Beijing’s management of the Xinjiang crisis; the potential role of the SCO in Afghanistan; and the crucial question of the collective use of water in Central Asia. Furthermore it discusses the renewal of the activism of Uzbek Islamists in both Afghanistan and the tribal zones of north Pakistan; and the prospects of developing an energy partnership between the EU and Central Asia. Two more articles are devoted to studying the evolution of Turkey’s geopolitical situation from the perspective of the Abkhaz diaspora issue and Ankara’s energy ambitions, while another article tackles Afghanistan and the question of water, irrigation development, and future climate change.
