The course “Post-Soviet Central Eurasia” seeks to give students a solid understanding of the nation-building processes that took place in the Central Eurasian region since the fall of the Soviet Union. The nation-building process consists of three interrelated parts – creation of national identity and ideology; construction of communication, economic and transport infrastructure that binds the nation together; establishing of state apparatus and political system that enables exercise of power over the state. Therefore, the three modules of this course would be based on these phases of the state-building process. Students will be able to comprehend key issues in Central Asian internal politics.
