The China and Eurasia Forum Quarterly Volume 8, No. 4 (2010) is out. This issue contains two commentaries, first, on remittances by migrants workers to the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan in the wake of the global economic crisis, and second, an account of Kazakh-Sino relations from a Kazakh's perspective. The analytical articles in this issue include discussion on the state of EU-Central Asian affairs, U.S. foreign policy approach towards Iran’s controversial nuclear program, and an account of Uyghur Diasporic Nationalism. These are followed by articles on recent energy developments in Eurasia, the roles of China and Russia in the SCO, Sino-Indian trade relations in the context of their ongoing border disputes, and finally, a discussion on the rise of China using realist perspectives to shed light on whether a Sino-Russian alliance will form, and if so, the likelihood of war between great powers, notably the United States and China.
Also, it is with great sadness for us to announce that the China and Eurasia Forum Quarterly journal will be discontinued after this issue. To learn more, please refer to the Editors' Note below. We hope you enjoy reading this final issue as much as we have enjoyed preparing it.
