Central Asia

01-01-2018

The EU’s 2007 Central Asia strategy was last reviewed in 2015. It aims to achieve stability and prosperity, while promoting open societies, the rule of law, democratisation, and cooperation on energy security and diversification. Parliament has highlighted the importance of human rights, good governance and social development. Levels of development and democratisation in these countries vary greatly and the EU tailors its approach accordingly. A proposal for a new strategy is expected by the end of 2019.
