Terrorism Trends in Central Asia

Terrorism trends in Central Asia suggest that the region is shifting from primarily an exporter of foreign fighters to one where domestic and regional terrorist attacks may become increasingly more common. Uzbekistan and Tajikistan are two of the countries that have produced the largest number of foreign fighters per capita: 1,500 and 1,300, respectively. Yet, the region has mostly been spared from terrorist attacks and, instead, religious extremists travel elsewhere. The diaspora has produced several attacks with deadly consequences: the Stockholm and New York truck attacks, the St. Petersburg Metro bombing, and the New Year’s Istanbul night club shooting are but a few examples of attacks perpetrated by foreign fighters from Central Asia. Authorities and security services worldwide are fearful of similar attacks in the future.

Kazakhstan has a decade to prepare for green transition

If you are an emerging market hooked on oil exports, how excited are you about the idea of a worldwide green economic transition? You may not be too happy, given that the transition is likely to suppress demand for oil and reduce oil prices. But, like Kazakhstan, you may quickly realise that there are just as many opportunities as there are challenges in embarking on a green transition.
