We show that the Brauer–Manin obstructions to the Hasse principle and weak approximation for homogeneous spaces under connected reductive groups over global function fields with connected reductive stabilizers are the only ones, extending some of Borovoi’s results (and thus also proving a partial case of a conjecture of Colliot-Thélène) in this regard. Along the way, we extend some perfect pairings and an important local-global exact sequence (an analog of a Cassels–Tate’s exact sequence) proved by Sansuc for connected linear algebraic groups defined over number fields, to the case of connected reductive groups over global function fields and beyond.
