Novastan is the only European media entirely dedicated to post-Soviet Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). Launched in Bishkek in 2011, it is now based in Paris and Berlin, and publishes online in French, German and English.
Since August 2017 and the creation of the non-profit associations Novastan France in Paris and Novastan E.V. in Berlin, Novastan is a community as well as a media. This English website falls under the umbrella of Novastan France for now; feel free to read our statutes and the minutes of our latest extraordinary and ordinary general meetings (all in French). The French and German organisations have signed a partnership agreement which you can find here in French and here in German.
As a community media, Novastan organises events in France and Germany on top of publishing news and analysis.
Our English version launched in January 2021.
