INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CENTRAL ASIAN STUDIES (IICAS) BY THE UNESCO SILK ROAD PROGRAMME

ISBN: 0; Era: 0; Country: ; Key words: INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CENTRAL ASIAN STUDIES (IICAS) BY THE UNESCO SILK ROAD PROGRAMME;

BACKGROUND Established in 1995 at the initiative of UNESCO and the Government of Uzbekistan, the International Institute for Central Asian Studies (IICAS) has a core of 10 countries: Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, China, Korea, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkey and Uzbekistan, and headquarters located in Samarkand (Uzbekistan). The Institute functions outside politics and follows a course of its own. 5 MISSION IICAS’s mission is bringing scientific and cultural problems of Central Asia to a wider audience’s attention, as well as improving cooperation among local scientists and their foreign colleagues as part of a multidisciplinary study of the region, which includes tangible and intangible cultural heritage, environment, archeology, history, art history, history of religions, history of sciences, ethnography, historical geography, written and spoken literature, social sciences and others. The mission and functions of IICAS are clearly reflected in and promoted through the research and applied projects implemented by the Institute. IICAS AT A GLANCE The Institute has the opportunity not only to act as an intermediary among scientists from around the world but also to coordinate projects in a mode facilitated for all parties. IICAS is the only scientific organization of its kind in Central Asia; therefore, the Republic of Uzbekistan granted the Institute with a wide range of privileges, including:  Tax exemption;  Customs duties exemption;  Diplomatic immunity. IICAS fosters cooperation not only with Member States. The Institute has a wide network of Associate Members, including major universities, organizations and research centers with focus on cultural heritage. Leading researchers and experts from France, Netherlands and the UK take part in the activities of IICAS as Corresponding Members. As a partner and co-organizer, the Institute conducts research projects fully and comprehensively. Striving to sustain unique research projects, IICAS actively facilitates the search for funding opportunities. Thanks to its wide network of partners and status, IICAS can make contacts not only with individual scientists and research institutions but also with national governments of other countries. With reference to the Institute’s mission, values and goals, this makes IICAS a hub for implementing projects of various scales. Importantly, IICAS enjoys continuous support from UNESCO.  OPERATING PRINCIPLES IICAS supports continuous research in the field of science and culture by selecting scientific projects on a competitive basis and awarding biannual research grants. Being open to grant applications from all over the world, IICAS sustains the diversity and innovative character of research. This constitutes the fundament of the Institute’s operations. PROJECTS OF IICAS Since 2010 IICAS has successfully implemented a number of research and applied science projects. The focus of projects ranged from documenting archaeological sites, developing free access to historic manuscripts, supporting inventory of artwork and studying intangible cultural heritage of Central Asia to performing Heritage Impact (HIA) and Condition Assessments and supporting international cultural initiatives. Geographically, the projects embraced not only Central Asia, but also Iran, Azerbaijan and a number of other states. PROJECTS OF IICAS IICAS actively continues to expand its network of partners and explores a number of new strategic research areas. In particular, the Institute in cooperation with the University College London, UK and with financial support from the Arcadia Fund is creating a comprehensive geo-referenced database of heritage sites. Heritage Impact Assessments of a number of World Heritage properties and preparation of a dossier to nominate a number of cultural heritage properties to the World Heritage List are among other activities carried out by IICAS. The projects have become IICAS’s success stories largely due to the professionalism of experts, incredibly well coordinated teamwork and the pursuit of excellence. PUBLICATIONS Over the 23 years of its existence, the Institute has issued more than 60 scientific publications that have become the result of the scientific and research activities of the Institute. In addition, IICAS has been publishing the journal IICAS for more than 10 years. The journal is published twice a year in Russian and English, and is on the list of the Higher Attestation Commission of Uzbekistan. All publications of the Institute are distributed free of charge and are available to everyone. IICAS, independently or in cooperation with UNESCO, organizes international scientific conferences in which dozens of leading scientists from Central Asia and the world have already taken part. Many of the IICAS publications are bilingual and are prepared in English and Russian.

Archeology, history and architecture of medieval Ustrushan

ISBN: 978-9943-357-06-8; Era: 9-13; Country: ; Key words: archeology, demolished, architecture, central asia;

The monograph takes the first step to summarizing numerous materials on the archeology, history and architecture of Ustrushan, a medieval estate located in the geographical center, between Sogd and Bactria, on the one hand, and Chach and Ferghana, on the other. It should be noted that this possession played a significant role in the socio-economic and ethnocultural transit between these regions, in particular, and the entire northern part of Central Asia as a whole. Long-term archaeological research not only provided a large amount of historical data, but alsoemphasized the important role of Ustrushana in this process. It should be noted that at present Ustrushana, as part of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, has made a peculiar contribution to the treasury of Central Asia and world civilization as a whole. The monograph is of interest not only to specialists, archaeologists and historians, but also to those who are interested in the past of the peoples of Central Asia.
