14:10 – 15:20 Panel One: Regional Security and Political Development in Central Asia

Central Asia has a huge economic potential. Being rich of energy resources countries in the region are an important factor to the stability of Eurasia. At the same time, five Central Asian countries navigate in the midst of intertwining interests and the presence of various actors in the region. Should the EU and China investigate possibilities to coordinate and possibly even join efforts under the Silk Road Economic Belt initiative? How can the US engagement be sustained in the Central Asia region in the aftermath of the ISAF withdrawal?

ModeratorDr Svante E. Cornell

Speakers:

Mr Eduards Stiprais, Under-Secretary of State – Political Director, MFA of Latvia

Dr Nicklas Norling, Research Fellow on Central Asian issues, Institute for Security and Development Policy

Discussion, Q&A Session

15:20 – 15:50 Coffee break

15:50 – 16:50 Panel Two: Assessing the European Strategy on Central Asia

The EU and Central Asia reached a new quality of partnership with the 2007 EU-Central Asia Strategy for a New Partnership. It covers a broad spectrum of areas, but the partnership is still maturing and demands regular adjustment (the EU has assessed the advances made in its June 2012 Progress Report). How can the EU engagement be more efficient in Central Asia? What are the priority areas for cooperation that would trigger positive changes in a wider context and in a more comprehensive manner (security, economy, education)? Is the EU’s “offer” attractive enough and competitive? Does the EU possess the right toolbox?

Moderator: Dr Neil John Melvin

Speakers:

Mr Toivo Klaar, Head of the Central Asia Division, European External Action Service

Dr Dastan Yeleukenov, Ambassador of Kazakhstan to Sweden

Dr Svante E. Cornell, Director, Institute for Security and Development Policy
