Lecturer, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Social Sciences, La Trobe University

Luca Anceschi’s main research interests include the politics and international relations of Central Asia and the Middle East. His most recent book – Turkmenistan's Foreign Policy: Positive Neutrality and the Consolidation of the Turkmen Regime – is the first book-length analysis of Turkmenistani foreign policy published by a Western scholar. Luca has been recently awarded a DECRA Fellowship from the Australian Research Council, to investigate a project focusing on the role of Islam in the relations between two key Gulf States (Saudi Arabia and Iran) and the newly independent states of post-Soviet Central Asia.
