International and transnational exchanges are increasingly subjected to global and regional governance. State and non-state actors must navigate through complex institutional and normative frameworks when they are pursuing international cooperation goals and objectives. Governance frameworks are steadily encompassing most of international transactions be it in peace, trade, security or healthcare, among many others. Central Asian countries are part of global and regional normative and institutional frameworks. They are part of global governance organizations like UN, WTO, or IMF. They are also at the center of emerging formal or informal Eurasian regional institutions like SCO, EAEU, CICA, or Belt and Road Initiative. CAIDS will continually study implications of global and regional governance evolution for Central Asia. At the same time, CAIDS will provide evidence-based reports on the evolution of governance practices in Central Asia.
