Studies on Central Asia and the Caucasus was established as the official publication of ASIAC, the Italian Association for Studies on Central Asia and the Caucasus, which has become a landmark organisation for area studies on Central Asia and the Caucasus in Italy and beyond. The aim of the journal is to contribute to the international academic literature and main research trends developed by international scholars interested in these areas, as well as to become a reference publication for the academic debate on the two regions. The journal is also the first academic journal in Italy specifically dedicated to studies on Central Asia and the Caucasus.
