The NCAFP’s Central Asia project aims to promote a greater understanding of the geopolitical realities and the interests between states in the region--including the post-Soviet republics of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan--and the United States.
Since the project’s founding in 2005, events have included:
- Roundtable discussion with participants from the United States, Russia and China to discuss strategic interests in the region and the challenges confronting Central Asian nations over twenty years after independence
- Conference on the geopolitical environment and pipeline security of the Caspian Sea Basin Region as well as energy security for the United States and the European Union, co-hosted with the Brookings Institution Energy Security Initiative in Washington, DC
- Numerous meetings with civilian and military officials from the region to discuss security and stability in Central Asia
