This chapter explores Europe's role in Central Asia. Since 2007, the EU has resolved to become more assertive toward Central Asia, spurred by the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, tensions over energy matters with Russia, China's increasing power, and the influence of some regional organizations like the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). Indeed, the EU is now one of the main trading partners of the five Central Asian states. However, several issues continue to shape European policy in Central Asia, and the EU must reconcile sometimes contradictory interests: the promotion of European values, economic strategies, and security objectives linked in large part to the proximity of Afghanistan.
