Recent developments and issues within the scope of the Russian Federation, Central Asia and the Caucasus have been monitored and analyzed through different means and strategies during last years. Taking long-term developments and outlooks for progress under consideration, as well as security and development, we can understand the significance of thorough and in-depth studies of this region. The importance in studying this particular region, which came into existence following the collapse of the Soviet Union, rests in the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran shares a sizable geographic border with these nations.
