Specialty Group


The Eurasian Specialty Group is a diverse community of researchers, educators, and practitioners brought together by thematic interests regionally spanning Eurasia (the Caucasus, Central Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Russia). Member research is diverse and includes—but is not limited to—political ecology, resource and environmental management, critical geopolitics, “new” cultural geography, feminist geographies, and economic geography. Our members are located throughout the world and range from undergraduate students to professors emeriti.
