    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. For the European Union, the development of closer ties with Tajikistan within the context of the broader effort to forge a Strategy for the Central Asia could represent a significant opportunity. Tajikistan occupies a geographically peripheral position, but it is precisely this location outside the limelight – and therefore not so subject to the pressures of geopolitics and the struggle for energy resources that shapes much of the politics of the rest of the region – that could allow the EU to foster new forms of cooperation with the local authorities and to devise policies aimed at strengthening the Tajik state’s capacities and stability, which would significantly assist reform and development in the country. This would mean building on the encouraging developments taking place in bilateral relations and taking additional steps aimed at achieving the goals above in a more effective way.
