Central Eurasian Studies Society

 

The Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) is a private, non-political, non-profit, North America-based organization of scholars who are interested in the study of Central Eurasia, and its history, languages, cultures, and modern states and societies. We define the Central Eurasian region broadly to include Turkic, Mongolian, Iranian, Caucasian, Tibetan and other peoples. Geographically, Central Eurasia extends from the Black Sea region, the Crimea, and the Caucasus in the west, through the Middle Volga region, Central Asia and Afghanistan, and on to Siberia, Mongolia and Tibet in the east.

 Private University of Applied Sciences

 

The Private University of Applied Sciences Göttingen (PFH) is a private state-accredited university. Courses offered aim at training qualified junior managers, thus allowing the University to actively contribute to Germany's status as a competitive country in the fields of economy and science. Consistent practice-oriented teaching, pronounced internationality, and the development of innovative lectures are part of these endeavours.
