Social Changes and Public Opinion in Central Asia

Twenty-five years after independence, Central Asian societies are witnessing the emergence of new demographics, social and cultural changes that confirm the end of the "post-Soviet" period and the entry into another phase of history. In this presentation Professor Laruelle will analyze these changes and explore their possible meaning in terms of domestic and foreign policies for the region's countries.
