In this episode of Applied Geopolitics from RANE, host Rodger Baker speaks to Dr. Kamran Bokhari, Director of Analytical Development at the New Lines Institute, who has just returned from a trip to Central Asia. They discuss how Central Asia is re-emerging as a key region for trans-Eurasian trade. But the landlocked Central Asian “Stans” sit in a complicated neighborhood, with a new sort of Great Game being played quietly among Russia, China, and more recently Turkey, with political and security uncertainty in nearby Afghanistan, and with a growing desire for additional outside investment to build on recent economic and transportation gains.
