The European Society for Central Asian Studies (ESCAS) and Central European University (CEU) invite scholars to attend the ESCAS XI Conference, to be held on September 3-5, 2009, in Budapest. The event will be hosted by the Asia Research Initiative at Central European University.

European Society for Central Asian Studies (ESCAS)

ESCAS emerged out of an informal collaboration among Europe-based scholars with the purpose of promoting joint research and interdisciplinary studies on Central Asia in 1985. Cooperation was later institutionalized in 1995 when the Society was established. ESCAS holds bi-annual conferences on Central Asian Studies in Europe.

Asia Research Initiative (ARI)

The CEU Asia Research Initiative is a research center established in 2009 to conduct research, generate and disseminate knowledge on Asia. ARI takes a multi- and inter-disciplinary approach to studying social, political, economic and cultural dynamics in the region in partnership with academic institutions, governmental and intergovernmental organizations, and civil society.
