The Kazakh-German University together with the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography in Leipzig (Germany) is organising a roundtable on «Global flows, local agency: strategies and actors counterbalancing peripherality in shrinking urban areas of Central Asia and the South Caucasus?” in the frame of the BMBF-funded project «Survival strategies under conditions of extreme peripheralisation: Mining cities in Central Asia and the South Caucasus”.

The roundtable will take place on 31 July — 01 August 2019 in the Kazakh-German University, Pushkin Street 111, Room #27.
