The topic of regional organisations in Central Asia is one of the most hotly
debated in the policy and scholarly community, and the conclusions are
often greatly contrasting. This paper describes the main organisations and
programmes at work in the region, their membership, status and objectives. It
discusses the criteria used to judge their efficiency and analyses several cases
of actual ‘success’ and ‘failure’. It also focuses on the economic and geopolitical
patterns, both internal and external to the region, that impede the activities of
such organisations in Central Asia.
