The Institutional Development of SCO & Geopolitics of Central Asia
The international system had been marked by significant global changes throughout the twentieth
century. This complexity characterizes the nature of international relations at the start of the twenty-first
century. One significant feature of Modern international relations is global collaboration and incorporation of
regions in proximity. From the mid-twentieth century to present decade, political and economic regional
organizations are rapidly emerging in different regions. In the Eurasia, the cycle of regional cooperation and
incorporation evolved slowly. The Central Asian Republics (CARs) attempted to create new bilateral and
multilateral ties after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990s. The nations of the world have entered into
new era of multilateral cooperation which evolved principal international organizations. CARs made efforts
and joined other regional actors to co-found different regional organizations like the Eurasian Economic
Community (EEC), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and the Shanghai Cooperation
Organization (SCO). Although these organizations face a variety of obstacles in their growth but their success
is distinct. The SCO had been Eurasia's largest effective political organization.
