EU-Uzbekistan Relations: Paving the New Silk Road

As a platform for the promotion of dialogue and understanding between Europe and Asia on affairs of strategic regional and global importance, the European Institute for Asian Studies (EIAS) proposes an event aimed at addressing the uniqueness of Central Asia, and Uzbekistan in particular, in the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy.

After being presented at the European Union in the International Affairs 2016, the EIAS Research Paper The New Great Game: an opportunity for EU’s CFSP, authored by Mr Sebastiano Mori, represents the perfect tool to analyze the evolution of the EU-Uzbekistan relationship, which this year commemorates celebrate the 20th anniversary of the signing of Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA).

As showed by the continuing joint efforts to support the modernisation of the economies of the five republics, the partnership and the achievements between Brussels and Tashkent represent a fundamental pivot to examine and discuss this topic.


As this year marks the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) between the EU and Uzbekistan, EIAS proposes an event aimed at addressing the uniqueness of Central Asia, and Uzbekistan in particular, in the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy.
