CAIS integrates the study of Middle Eastern and Central Asian contemporary politics, international relations, history, culture, political economy and the role of Islam within the broader framework of the changing global order. Since its foundation in 1994, CAIS teaching and research programs have specialised in the study of Central Asia, Eurasia and Afghanistan. The foundation Director of CAIS, Professor Amin Saikal, established programs of study for both the Middle East and Central Asia through the 1990s. With his first-hand knowledge of Afghanistan and the wider region, Professor Saikal developed a political science program unique in Australia.
Dr Kirill Nourzhanov joined CAIS as a lecturer in 2000 and further developed the core areas of study of Central Asia and Eurasia. He came to ANU from Moscow State University and with his expertise in Central Asia has further expanded the program to compete with other such programs around the world.
CrisisWatch is the global conflict tracker of the International Crisis Group, and provides "a tool designed to help decision-makers prevent deadly violence by keeping them up-to-date with developments in over 80 conflicts and crises, identifying trends and alerting them to risks of escalation and opportunities to advance peace."
The platform is a collaboration between the Central Asia Program (CAP) and the Central Asian Analytical Network (CAAN), both part of The George Washington University‘s Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (IERES). The platform allows scholars, authors, and journalists to access research insights, policy discussions, fieldwork recollections, photos, charts, and data on Central Asia.
