The 18th South Caucasus Security Conference 2019

The 18th South Caucasus Security Conference, organized by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, was held on March 29-30, 2019 in Tsaghkadzor, Armenia.

The dialogue on security challenges and opportunities of the South Caucasus focused on the region’s most recent political developments and their implications on foreign policy. Round-table discussions were held under the Chatham House Rule. Main topics of discussion included the foreign policy implications of the Velvet Revolution in Armenia; whether a new path to peace exists for Nagorno-Karabakh, and whether the EU can remain a “normative power” in the South Caucasus during times of democratic backsliding.


Conference annually welcomes politicians, political analysts, diplomats, academics, experts, and journalists from the South Caucasus, EU, USA, Ukraine, Turkey, Iran, and Russia, as well as representatives from foreign embassies and missions in Armenia.
