Regarding international region as a complex of objectively existent institutions and of subjective knowledge of them, as well as a combination of regional identities, the author demonstrates that an important component of the process of an international region’s formation is the appearance of international institutions providing regular patterns of interactions between actors. On stating this process in Central Asia he observes that the formation means conflict of contradicting projects and coexistence of mutually exclusive structures, both the former and the latter having not only natural, but also artificial, political-technology or social-engineering dimension. That is, in his opinion, exactly what accounts for the fact that the forms of interactions between different actors on the territory of contemporary Central Asia correspond to none of the classical paradigms of description of the structure of games in international regions.
