Abstract

The purpose of the study is to re-examine some aspects of the geopolitical-economic understanding of Central Eurasia through a descriptive approach, that is, irrespective of the interests that motivate the world and other countries in this region. It is extremely important for the region’s countries to be aware of the objectives the world and regional actors are pursuing in this region. This will make it easier for them to find their bearings and know what kind of relations to build with their external partners. The rest of the world would know somehow what goals the Central Eurasian states are pursuing.

Keywords: Central Eurasia, Central Caucaso-Asia, geopolitics, geoeconomics
