Great Decisions 2007

Central Asia

"Muslims of Central Asia: Hope and Dedication in a Post-Soviet World".

Eren Tasar
Davis Center for Eurasian and Russian Studies, Harvard University

Join WorldBoston as we examine the role Islam plays in the five
Central Asian nations. Coined as "The New Great Game", Central Asia is
quickly becoming a sought after land environmentally, politically, and
religiously among major world powers. Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan,
Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan are each attempting to carve
out their own unique identity amidst the backdrop of their rich
religious and social differences and shared history.

Each Spring WorldBoston hosts the series known as Great Decisions.
This series was created by the Foreign Policy Association who also
selects the topics covered each year. In Boston, WorldBoston leads
community discussions with a local expert every Tuesday night in March
and April at the main branch of the Boston Public Library. All
sessions are free of charge and open to the public. WorldBoston is
grateful for the financial support of the Lowell Institute which makes
this series possible as well the in-kind support it receives from the
Boston Public Library.
