The China and Eurasia Forum is an independent forum which seeks to
bring together regional experts, academics, government policy makers,
and business leaders with an interest in the growing relationship
between China and Eurasia. The forum is affiliated to the Central
Asia-Caucasus Institute and the Silk Road Studies Program.

Focusing primarily on Sino-Central Asian, Sino-Russian, and
Sino-Caucasian relations, the goal of the CEF Quarterly is to foster
discussion and information sharing between a geographically distant
community that recognizes the significance of China's emergence in
this important part of the world.

The editor invites longer analytical articles of approximately 7000
words or shorter more concrete articles on approximately 2000 words.
The next issue will be out in May 2008. Authors are encouraged to
submit interesting and thought-provoking articles for review to

Central-Eurasia-L mailing list
