“Multiple vectors of Central Asia: Tajik Case” seminar took place on 24 September 2018 at the Moscow office of the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute.
International journalist and political scientist Arkady Dubnov, Senior Fellow from the Center for Strategic and Political Studies Aziz Niyazi and Professor from the Tajik State University of Law, Business and Politics Ochil Zokhidov delivered keynote reports.
Speakers and participants of the seminar expressed different views on the current content and prospects of further evolution of Tajikistan’s foreign policy. Opinion consensus emerged though that multiple vectors of Tajikistan’s international posture including cooperation with rival regional and global powers is indispensable, if the country is going to survive as an independent and robust actor on international arena.
The seminar became the first in the series led by DOC RI Chief Researcher Alexey Malashenko and dedicated to the study of the international position and foreign policy of the Central Asian states.
Events with the analysis of other Central Asian cases will follow later this year.
