Registan’s Caucasus News & Analysis Archive
At Registan, we are keenly interested in the Soviet successor states of the Caucasus and Central Asia. Registan.net was founded to shine a light on the region for western audiences and to add context to media reporting. In our nearly ten years of publishing news and analysis on the region, we have amassed an archive of thousands of items discussing these regions’ people, cultures, religions, politics, and foreign policies. All of our contributors who cover Central Asia or the Caucasus have lived or traveled extensively in the region, have a background in post-Soviet studies, and most speak one or more of the languages used in the region.
In addition to publishing a widely read and recognized weblog on Central Asia and the Caucasus, Registan offers research, analysis, and training services tailored to your individual needs. For more information on how we can help you and your organization better understand the region.
