BORDER SEMINAR | The borders in South Caucasus

Mercredi 24 février 2021


Border Seminar | Online

The borders in South Caucasus -
The new regional dynamics after the ceasefire agreement in Nagorno-Karabakh

IRSEM / INALCO - February 24th, 2021

The objective of this seminar cycle is to lead a reflection on borders in the Eurasian space understood "at large", and on case studies which are little discussed in academia. The purpose is to question major themes related to defense and security issues in the area - unresolved conflicts, competition for power, Russian pivot to Asia, militarization of the Arctic, through the lens of border dynamics. Emphasis will be placed on the dialogue between different scales, the local, the national and the global, to show that the study of one specific case can illustrate broader trends. The seminar will have an important international dimension as speakers come from various countries, and will try as much as possible to foster intellectual exchanges between scholars and practitioners. Proceedings of the seminar are planned to be published in the following year.

Speakers :
Olesya Vartaniyan (International Crisis Group) & Sergei Markedonov (MGIMO)
