    Security and Defense Reform in Central Asia

    The Journal of Power Institutions in Post-Soviet Societies

    Two decades after the Soviet regime's collapse, the military and security institutions of Central Asia play an ever more important role in supporting national regimes and addressing national and regional challenges. After independence, the leaders of Central Asian countries increased their reliance on the military to address the challenges of independence and promote security. This inevitably influenced civil-military and intra-military relations, and society’s perception of the military. This issue will focus on the changes that have taken place in Central Asian military institutions since the fall of the Soviet Union, as well as the lingering continuities of the Soviet legacy. How do changes in Central Asian militaries compare to those of other former Soviet states? How do international actors influence change and continuity of Central Asian power institutions? Are there any signs of a revival of pre-Soviet traditions in Central Asian militaries?

    Approaches to post-Soviet transformations

    Summer school in Dnipropetrovsk (Ukraine)

    Two decades after the collapse of the USSR, evolutionary paths travelled by post-Soviet societies are spectacularly diverse - posing analytical challenges for social scientists. In the first post-Soviet years, these societies were expected to “Westernize” and so social transformations were supposedly transitional. Later, it became obvious that genuine evolution observed in the former USSR needed genuine analytical tools. Dramatic change exhibiting a strange (at times conflict-ridden) coexistence of transformation and continuity neither elicits comparison to “normal” social evolution, nor can it be explained as a chaotic or un-analysable specificity. The aim of the summer school is to discuss different approaches / concepts used to analyse post-Soviet transformations and to question their heuristic effectiveness. The Summer School is designed to be interdisciplinary and international.
