Central Asia facing the challenge of contemporary identity dynamics

Rustam Makhmudov, a Leading Research Fellow at the Centre for Anthropology and Conflict Studies of the Institute for Advanced International Studies (IAIS), has published an article on “Central Asia facing the challenge of contemporary identity dynamics” in the Proceedings of the international conference “Identification in Central Asian countries: trajectories of development”, organised in December 2023 in Almaty by the Representative Office of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation in Central Asia. 

The article discusses in detail the issue of the entry and functioning of various identity constructs formed in other cultural and civilisational spaces in the region. Identity is described by the author as a socio-economic institution, and the latest modern scientific-theoretical methods are applied to the analysis of its phenomenon.
