SEnECA Midterm Conference and Scenario Workshop “EU and Central Asia Relations: Current Trends and Future Prospects”

Which researchers are working on EU-Central Asia relations in Europe and which scholars study the European Union in Central Asia? Which stake­holders from civil society, media and the private sector are engaged in EU-Central Asia relations, and how can they be better connected in a more closely-knit network?

These are two of the main questions which the project “SEnECA – Strength­ening and Energizing EU-Central Asia Relations” would like to answer. The Midterm Conference and Scenario Workshop taking place in Almaty on 29–31 January 2019 is the second occasion for the Horizon 2020 project SEnECA to present the current state of affairs, discuss ways to provide policy recom­men­da­tions to decision-makers and engage stake­holders within the new EU Strategy for Central Asia.

Date: Almaty, Kazakhstan, 29–31 January 2019

Venue: Tba

The conference is struc­tured in three parts:

The panel discus­sions will include community repre­sen­ta­tives such as researchers and government officials from the EU and Central Asia. The Academic Policy Advice Training will provide the conference partic­i­pants with the oppor­tunity to acquire skills on how to transfer their research results into policy recom­men­da­tions towards decision-makers. During the Scenario Building Workshop, the conference partic­i­pants will develop possible scenarios for the future of EU-Central Asia relations in working groups under the guidance of an expert in scenario building.

The SEnECA conference in Almaty offers a great oppor­tunity for researchers and practi­tioners from Central Asia to network and to connect with their European Counter­parts.
