I did an interview with the Central Asian Analytical Network recently. Discussed a whole range of things: how I got into studying/writing about Central Asia, how covering the region fits into The Diplomat‘s overarching Asia focus, coverage of the region by Western media, my thoughts on the region’s challenges, opportunities and a bunch more.
It was translated into Russian, too. CAAN’s aim is to give people in the region greater access to objective information and good analysis so most of their content is primarily in Russian. They’re doing wonderful work.
