Emirates Diplomatic Academy: The New Great Power Competition in Central Asia: Opportunities and Challenges for the Gulf

May 2021 Working Paper

In his contribution published at the Anwar Gargash Diplomatic Academy, Mher Sahakyan, Director of the China-Eurasia Council for Political and Strategic Research, talks about The New Great Power Competition in Central Asia: Opportunities and Challenges for the Gulf.

This working paper delves into how in a changing world order, where the struggle for power between the East (China and Russia) and the West (United States and the European Union) is at a decisive phase, Central Asia will be an important theatre of competition. The author points out that while the Sino-Russian tandem has managed to retain its superiority in the region thus far, this could change depending on how the other great powers – Turkey, Iran, India, and the GCC countries – play their cards in the ‘modern great game’ in Central Asia.
