Our public lecture series featured an enlightening book talk led by H.E. Dr. Djoomart Otorbaev, former Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan.
The discussion revolved around his book, "Central Asia's Economic Rebirth in the Shadow of the New Great Game," which examines the region's post-Soviet economic and political transformation, including its successes, challenges, distinctive growth, and the Azerbaijan angle.
Dr. Otorbaev discussed the complex dynamics of Central Asia's relationship with key participants in the New Great Game: Russia, China, and the West.
Afterward, think tank representatives and students posed insightful questions, contributing to the dialogue.
