About us

Asiac promotes knowledge exchange on Central Asia and the Caucasus.

The association is targeted at scholars, universities, and other cultural institutions, and promotes meetings among researchers and the coordination of research activities on Central Asia and the Caucasus.

ASIAC is open to exchange with practitioners, humanitarian workers, and economic actors working in the region, Ministries and other government agencies involved in cultural, political, or diplomatic activities, as well as media organisations interested in opinions and background information on current events.

Asiac relies on the activities of its own members and supporters; it does not have employees nor is it in the position to host interns.
