Eurasia is the largest continent on Earth and home to more than three quarters of its population. Increasingly, the social constructs that distinguished ‘Europe’ from ‘Asia’ is making place for a more integrated view. Herein, economic integration and business growth have reinforced the interdependency of the continent in terms of social, demographic and geo-political dimensions and its importance in understanding some of the most pressing global issues. Eurasia’s rise has significant relevance for population movements and aging, urbanisation, water, food and energy demands, climate change adaption and mitigation, religious conflicts, and the spread and impact of technological innovations, and will reshape the face of international higher education.

Themes and topics

This one-day international research conference aims to bring together scholars working on some of central themes that currently define the rise of Eurasia and its implications for East-West business and economic relations, including (but not restricted to):
  • China’s soft power: The New Silk Road and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.
  • Central Asia: Opening up to international investments and diversifying.
  • Energy: avoiding conflicts, promoting sustainability.
  • Shifting power: Europe’s economic stagnation and potential fragmentation.
  • Migration: The patterns and economics of Eurasian migration.
  • Security: European sanctions against Russia: Time to redefine EU-Russian relations?
  • Conflict: Doing business in a heterogeneous and volatile continent.
  • Higher education: what are the opportunities for expansion and development of higher education, and in particular business school co-operation across the continent?
  • Turkey: Can Turkey live up to its promise of becoming an economic powerhouse?
  • India: Implications of expanding and liberalizing trade and accelerating industrialization and growth: is India the underestimated sub-continent?
