S. Frederick Starr and Svante Cornell will direct the research and publications program of the Central Asia–Caucasus Institute. The institute’s work will include an assessment of political and economic reform in the region, most importantly in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan; an analysis of emerging political regionalism; and an exploration of how the region is navigating the tensions between secular governance and Islam. The project’s findings will appear in a series of publications and be disseminated through public events and briefings for the policy community.
