IFEAC and the Kyrgyz-Turkish Manas University have the pleasure to invite you to the lecture that the French scholar Bayram Balci will deliver on “Central Asian Islam. Between Internal Dynamics and Foreign Influences” at the ORASAM seminar. The lecture will be in English.


Although the end of the Soviet Union signified an indisputable turning point in the history of Central Asian Islam, the latter’s revival started much earlier than the end of the Soviet Union according to many serious analyses. Despite Soviet control on societies and religion, prominent Islamic figures emerged before the end of the Soviet Union, playing a determinant role in the making of new religious elites and forcing post-Soviet regimes to adopt a more inclusive and comprehensive attitude toward Islam. However, although endogenous and inherent to local societies, this Islamic revival would not have been so vigorous without diverse foreign influences. Indeed, the end of the Soviet Union has permitted domestic Islamic revival factors to benefit from various Turkish, Iranian, Arab and South Asians Islamic trends. The degree of convergence between local and global Islam has determined the nature and vigour of Islam in each country.


Dr Bayram Balci is affiliated to the Centre of international studies and research of the Institute of political studies (CERI-Sciences Po) in Paris, and a non-resident scholar of the Russia and Eurasia Programme of Carnegy Endowment for International Peace in Washington D.C. He works on the features and interactions of Shia and Sunni Islam in Azerbaijan and its relations with Iran, as well as Turkey’s influence on Central Asia and its Islamic revival. He is the author of Missionnaires de l’Islam en Asie centrale: Les écoles turques de Fethullah Gülen (Maisonneuve & Larose, 2003) and recently co-edited China and India in Central Asia: A New “Great Game”? (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010).
