This event will explore the domestic and international dimensions of security in the South Caucasus. The first session will focus on the internal dimensions, such as economy, governance, generational change, religion, and crackdown on freedom of expression. The second session will focus on the external dimensions, analysing the role of Russia, Turkey and Iran, diminishing US-EU involvement, and military security. Each session will start with brief initial remarks by the panel, followed by an hour for questions and discussion.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
