The disruption of Russian gas supplies in 2022 sparked a profound reappraisal of supply and infrastructure dependencies beyond the EU-Russia energy relationship. In this new geopolitical reality, it is necessary to critically assess Russia’s use of energy supply and infrastructure investments as a tool of geopolitical power in Central Asia. Russia has heavily relied on legal instruments—an often neglected dimension of energy statecraft—to cement energy dependencies. This seminar will scrutinize Russia’s bilateral energysupply relationships and investment agreements in the region. It will also address the regional energy market integration under the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the Russia-Kazakhstan-Uzbekistan Gas Union, a trilateral alliance that symbolizes a significant shift in Central Asian energy dynamics.
