After a synthetic reflections on the rapid internationalisation of research on modern Central Eurasian societies, and on their marginal institutional development in the 1990s in the framework of existing European research institutions, the author rapidly evokes the activity of the main research institutions and funds on the level of the European Unions, then country by country (Germany, Great Britain, France, Nordic countries, and others).  This introduction tries to localise the main institutions and provide about them short electronic coordinates as well as reference to the recent works of leading researchers and research groups and projects.  The article ends with a substantial bibliography (pp. 191-211).
