Putting the South Caucasus in Perspective
Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia have been independent states for more than 23 years. Although geographically contiguous, they differ in language, religion, and political and security orientation. How is each country faring in state-building, developing democracy, and improving economic performance? What are their relationships with Russia and the West, and with each other? How does their historical experience influence current developments, and what are their long term prospects? Two of the most prominent academic experts of the South Caucasus, Professors Ronald Suny and Stephen Jones discussed these and other issues in a town hall style event moderated by Wilson Center Global Fellow, Ambassador (ret.) Kenneth Yalowitz.
