SEnECA – Strengthening and Energizing EU-Central Asia Relations

The project “SEnECA – Strengthening and Energizing EU-Central Asia Relations” seeks to improve research cooperation and to strengthen capacities in research and policy advice in the EU and Central Asia, having recognized the importance of Central Asia for Europe. SEnECA will publish a series of Policy Papers/Briefs that will clearly outline the relevance of the region for specific policy fields of the EU and the interconnectedness of both regions, as well as the Central Asian countries’ interests in cooperating with Europe. An international consortium with twelve partner organizations from the EU and all five Central Asian countries will carry out the project. It is led by Prof Dr Michael Kaeding, professor for European politics at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE), and Dr Katrin Böttger, Director of the Institut für Europäische Politik (IEP).
