Our interdisciplinary research focuses on state and society relations at large. We focus on understanding the breaking and making of states, the creation of norms and organizing of power in spaces where different stories and histories merge – including, but not limited to, Central Asia. If the state represents the historical institutionalization of social conflicts and power, we now live in an ideal time to witness and understand what conflicts, whose power and through which practices states are forged.
