“This report analyzes opportunities for Central Asia to expand its energy-exporting capacities, fortifying and assuaging a disrupted international system reeling from Russian aggression and its lack of reliability as an energy supplier. This report engages with four axes of analysis: 1) the potential of Central Asia’s natural resources to meet current energy demand, 2) what infrastructure exists or would need to exist to export these resources, 3) whether the Central Asian Republics (CARs) are sufficiently stable to be reliable economic partners, and 4) whether proximity and ties to Russia and China pose an obstacle to the development of a partnership.”
