This collection explores the European Union's growing substantial geopolitical interest and presence in Central Asia. Authors analyze changes in the EU's economy, trade and investment relations with the region. They not only explain why the Central Asian region was until recently not regarded by the EU's trade and investment as a priority but identify the potential areas of cooperation, including water management, energy and transport. Authors discuss European engagement in various energy projects aiming mainly to secure energy supply and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This book also examines the EU's strategy priorities towards Central Asia; i.e. democracy, human rights, rule of law, and good governance. The collection provides clear, concise and fresh explanations of relations between the EU and Central Asian states. An important book recommended for professionals and students of political science and international relations.
