Contested Borders in the Caucasus

Bruno Coppieters (ed.)

The contributors to this book cover the ethnic conflicts in the Caucasus over Nagorno-Karabakh, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and the conflict in the North Caucasus between the Ingush and Ossetes. Alexei Zverev gives a broad overview of all these conflicts. Ghia Nodia's contribution focuses on the consequences of Georgian independence for the conflict with South Ossetia. Dmitri Trenin and Dmitri Danilov discuss Russia's interests and policies in the region. Eric Remacle and Olivier Paye deal with the mediation policies of the CSCE and the UN in the main conflicts there.
Firouzeh Nahavandi and Abdollah Ramezanzadeh analyse Iranian policies in the region, while Freddy De Pauw describes Turkish disillusionment with its co-operation projects with Azerbaijan.
The conclusions of Bruno Coppieters examine the Caucasus as an issue of regional security.
