Summary: This review is devoted to the book Development in Central Asia and the Caucasus: Migration, Democratisation and Inequality in the Post-Soviet Era. It is the product of an international research project by historians, anthropologists, political scientists, demographers, and some other scholars. The key point of the book that connects all the authors is the analysis of the Post-Soviet Caucasus and Central Asia as a ‘new Global South’. From this perspective, the problems of poverty, migration, social inequality, and state and nation-building are considered in the monograph.

Keywords: the post-Soviet space, ‘new South’, Central Asia, Caucasus, postcolonial studies, migration, poverty, inequality.
