David Lewis speaks at Foreign and Commonwealth Office

On 7 March 2014, David Lewis spoke at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office seminar, ‘Afghanistan as a threat to Central Asia: myth or reality?’ Jos Boonstra from EU Central Asia Monitoring also spoke and Roy Allison from Oxford was discussant.  ExCAS members John Heathershaw and Anna Matveeva were also in attendance.  It was generally agreed that effect of the 2014 draw-down of Western troops will have only minimal and limited effects on the post-Soviet republics.
