Welcome to CASPIANA 

Caspiana: A Digital Toolbox for Students and Scholars of Central Asia and the South Caucasus is a website created to facilitate research on the fascinating regions spreading east and west of the Caspian Sea. It is developed and hosted by The Program on Central Asia at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Harvard University. Here you can find links to selected media sources, government portals, legislation databases, statistics, and academic resources to study eight countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

Our website can be navigated in two ways: through subject or by country. Our four subjects include Media, Governance, Statistics, and Academic Resources with each being divided into country sections or into thematic sub-categories. If you prefer to navigate through countries, you can do so by clicking on the countries listed on the home page, through the Country List tab located in the top bar, or by clicking on the map if you are viewing our website on a desktop.  

Our project is in a pilot stage and we hope to improve and enhance it in the future. We welcome recommendations on resources to be included in our database and ideas on new features. It can be done via the Contribute page located in the top bar.
