Strengthening Central Asian Studies in Europe (EISCAS)

Eurasian Insights: Strengthening Central Asian Studies in Europe (EISCAS) is an Erasmus+ Strategic partnership for higher education for development of Central Asian Studies (CAS) throughout the EU (and beyond with non-EU partners). EISCAS contributes to improve the formative education of Central Asian professionals with broad knowledge and understanding of the political, legal, economic, cultural and social issues of the region. The EISCAS project supports the integration of the fragmented group of Central Asian experts and students in the EU and will offer state-of-the-art teaching materials to teachers of CAS, so they can expand their course offer, as well as provide their students with a top-of-the-line, innovative, new handbook with complementary online study materials.
