Program & Registration

This panel on “Turkey and Central Eurasia” is the first in a series of inquiries sponsored by several MSU centers and programs into “The Geopolitics and Economics of Central Eurasia and Its Neighbors.” Future panels will look at China, Russia, Europe and other external actors to explore trans-regional relationships and interactions, as China’s Belt and Road Initiative plays out, Russia seeks to regain dominant influence over former Soviet regions in its “near abroad,” and Turkey seeks to unite the Turkic language speaking world in what some have termed “Neo-Ottomanism.”
