The United States and the South Caucuses: Successes, Setbacks and Adjustments
April 18, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The preeminence of the United States was never so pronounced in the first decade following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. However, many in the South Caucasus believe that Washington could have done considerably more for the three countries and the region in general.
To what extent is this dissatisfaction is justified? Does it have to do with actual policy mistakes or is it related to unduly high expectations the people in the three countries had a quarter a century ago?
Dr. George Mchedlishvili, currently a Carnegie Visiting Fellow at CERES, will argue that US policies towards the South Caucasus since the early 1990s have played an important role in determining domestic and foreign agenda in the three countries. The main focus will be foreign policies of the three South Caucasus states. The distinct ‘periods’ and major areas of engagement will be identified and delineated.
