Central Asia and the Caucasus Research Group presents
Oil, Ecology & Citizenship in the Caspian Sea Basin: Perspectives from Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Turkmenistan
This roundtable will address the following questions:
• What are the current and future challenges for citizenship, as they relate to oil extraction and the environment in the Caspian Sea basin?
• Who are the relevant actors (people, companies, institutions, etc.) when we talk about the oil-ecology-citizenship relationship in the Caspian Sea basin? Which actors are most influential in determining the shape of this relationship? And are there any actors whose perspective is not given sufficient attention?
• How might the oil-ecology-citizenship relationship change locally and regionally as more international organizations and financial institutions try to move way from oil? Are local actors already discussing or taking concrete steps to imagine a “post-oil” future for the Caspian Sea basin?
