Leiden University Centre for the Study of Islam and Society

Islam in Central Asia

In 2018, this programme is run within the Central Asia Initiative.

Central Asia is a region with fluid borders stretching into present-day Afghanistan, Russia, China, Mongolia, Iran and the Caucasus; a premodern highway of global interaction and today increasingly important as a centre stage of geopolitical interests. Leiden University is home to specialists in the languages, literature, history and material culture of Central Asia and thus provides a fruitful environment to study this region. 

You can read more about Central Asian Studies at Leiden on the website of Leiden's Central Asia Initiative.
