Peace and Security

Since independence, the South Caucasus has faced incessant and considerable security challenges. Home to three “frozen” conflicts, the region moreover sits atop geopolitical and civilizational fault lines – between Russia’s Eurasian Economic Union and the Western bloc of NATO and the EU, as well as at the juncture of the three former empires of Russia, Turkey, and Iran. Against this backdrop, the FES engages policymakers, experts, and civil society actors in constructive dialogues to develop policy recommendations and support a better understanding of the challenges facing not only each country, but the region as a whole. The three countries’ respective relations with the European Union, within the framework of the Eastern Partnership Program, play a crucial role in this format.
