Where the ancient keeps step with the modern, the past is weaved into the future.
A tapestry of cultures, climates, religions and races bristle in the bustling heart of a fast-changing region. Creativity keeps stride with conflict — tradition with change. From buzzing city streets to bucolic high plains — Central Asia poses endless questions — questions the world cannot afford to ignore.
With a powerful diaspora and growing geopolitical relevance, issues of culture, security and development have entered global discourse.
The Forum is a place to share information and foster discussion about this fast-paced dynamic region, providing a platform to organise, interact and write about the topics that interest you. Central Asia will no longer be left from the pages of world history.
Entering its second year, the UK’s first student-run Central Asia conference will take place at the beginning of 2019 at the University of Warwick. The conference seeks to bring together the worlds of academia, politics, business and culture to discuss topics regarding Central Asia’s place in the world.
Speeches and breakout sessions on topics ranging from regional security to the one belt one road project will dominate the day, and ample opportunity for networking and discussion will be provided at state-of-the-art conference facilities.
The University of Warwick is located in the heart of England, three miles from the centre of Coventry, on the border with Warwickshire.
Coventry Rail Station is the nearest main-line train station to the University, and there’s a frequent local bus service. Pay and display parking is available on campus, though it can get very busy during the day.
