Centre of Contemporary Central Asia & the Caucasus

Welcome to the Centre of Contemporary Central Asia and the Caucasus

Academic Staff

SOAS currently hosts a multi-disciplinary team of scholars working on Central Asia and the Caucasus, the largest grouping in any single institution in the U.K. and Europe. 

Alongside those engaged in the study of contemporary problems of post-Soviet transition, there is a broader grouping of scholars involved in the study of neighbouring areas (Iran and Afghanistan) and the archaeology, religion, linguistics, pre-history and history of Central Asia and the Caucasus, lending breadth and depth to the study of the region.  

The Centre also hosts research associates and visiting scholars who are working on projects relevant to the Centre.
