What is EUCAM

Shahi-Zinda, Samarkand, 2007. Author:Ulrike Gruska

Established in 2008 by FRIDE as a project seeking to monitor the implementation of the EU Strategy for Central Asia, EUCAM has grown into a knowledge hub on broader Europe-Central Asia relations. With CESS guidance and cooperation EUCAM will seek to continue to raise the profile of European-Central Asian relations in general, and more specifically to:

  • Critically, though constructively, scrutinize European policies towards Central Asia; 
  • Enhance knowledge of European engagement with Central Asia through top-quality research; ;
  • Raise awareness on the importance of Central Asia and Europe’s engagement, as well as discuss European policies among Central Asian communities;
  • Expand the network of experts and institutions from Europe and Central Asia and provide a forum for debate.
