The Central Asian Political Exiles Project Newsletter #3 Autumn 2018

Message from the Team

Welcome to the autumn edition of your Central Asia Political Exiles Newsletter.
In this issue, we discuss critical aspects on terrorism and radicalization from Central Asia,
human rights, participatory governance, repression and corruption in Central Asian and
Eurasian regions.

We would like to bring to your attention our future events on the topics of money laundering and transnational business networks, governance and development in Central Asia, and the 16th Biennial Conference of the European Society for Central Asian Studies (ESCAS), 27-29 June, 2019. We call all researchers on Central Asian migration, diaspora and exiles to apply to our pre-conference workshop.
We hope you will enjoy our latest news update!
