Central Asia is a very multifaceted, multi-ethnic, multi-confessional region, where many cultures, national traditions and ways of life intersect, united by a common factor - religious. The authors of the chapter on the role of religion in Central Asia in the book "Religion, Conflict, and Stability in the Former Soviet Union", prepared by the analytical center "RAND Corporation", touched upon a very important, significant and influential topic on the region. Experts note that, despite the success of Central Asia's attempts to avoid large-scale radicalization, there is a risk of its expansion today.
