Eurasia on the Edge: Managing Complexity
Eurasia, wherever one draws the boundaries, is very much at the centre of discussions about today’s world. Security across Eurasia is a global concern and has been subject to a range of discussions and debate. However, the current tensions over security and world order, with the growing challenges from Eurasia and Asia, require more intense scrutiny. The goals of the book are to explore the challenges facing the region and to assess how to achieve economic, social and political stability in the Eurasian core.
In May 2019 we will celebrate the fifth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the 25th anniversary of the idea of modern Eurasian integration. Since then, the Eurasian Economic Union established itself as a quite successfully developing, open and attractive integration block, which has indeed become the indisputable reality of the economic processes in Eurasia. Perhaps enough time has passed so that we might begin to think about a “theory of Eurasian integration” in itself, as well as to outline its potential contents.

Slowdown of the globalization especially in the aligning of the social standards creates conditions for bringing civilizational conflicts to the surface. It is premature to speak about formation of the full-scale civilizational fractures, though the borderlines are being outlines now. The civil war in Syria noticeably fastened the formation of such fractures and showed the mechanisms for their development. That makes considerable impact upon the New Eurasia. The structure and mechanisms of development of these proto-factures differ substantially from those analyzed and formulated before in fundamental studies. They include substantial factors that are results of developments in modern global political and economic system. The major factor in development of civilizational proto-factures though is evolution of the nature of social institutions and social links. That aspect is extremely important for the interests of Russia as well as for the socio-political developments in Eurasia
