This book examines the European Union's policy towards the five Central Asian states, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The growing importance of Central Asia to the EU has been expressed by an increase in EU's regional resource allocation and the formal specification of areas of co-operation between the EU and Central Asia, including human rights, trade, education, environmental issues and energy.

The analysis focuses on the EU's Central Asia strategy and provides an evaluation of the EU's performance in meeting its policy goals in the region. In particular, the book identifies and assesses European interests in the region and introduces the EU's set of instruments for safeguarding them. Against a set of performance indicators, the book examines the extent to which these interests have been achieved or are likely to be achieved in the short-and medium term. Furthermore, the book assesses the international environment in which the EU conducts its policy in Central Asia and identifies obstacles to and opportunities for the advancing of own interests through the presence of other international actors, such as, Russia, China, OSCE, and the United Nations, in the region. More generally, in providing substantial analysis of the fields in which the EU currently strengthens its engagement, the book contributes to a better understanding for the pitfalls of overall stability in Central Asia.
