About CESS

The mission of the Central Eurasian Studies Society is to: facilitate communication and interaction among scholars of the Central Eurasia region, and in doing so to promote high standards of scholarship and instruction about the Central Eurasia region; to promote cooperation among persons and organizations concerned with the scholarly study of Central Eurasia; and to promote general knowledge of and public interest in Central Eurasia. CESS is a volunteer-driven organization with staffing support provided by a Society Administrator and the organization NomadIT. Leadership of the Society is provided by the CESS Board, whose members are all volunteers. The Society is guided by its articles and bylaws, which are periodically reviewed and updated.

Our Regional Outreach Committee has translated the introduction to CESS into multiple Central Eurasian languages. See CESS in your language.
