The creation of the Russian Customs Union and the Eurasian Union has created new power paradigms between Russia and her neighbours. Given Russia’s new political self-confidence, questions arise on the nature and purpose of these unions as non-military tools of persuasion. Which implications for Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan might an expanding Eurasian Union have versus the - currently stalling - enlargement of the EU? Does joining the Eurasian Union automatically mean re-attachment to Russia (or Armenia, as the case may be) for breakaway regions? Is the South Caucasus at a new fault line separating two civilizations, is it merely located in a difficult geopolitical area and can these fault lines be erased to enhance reaching a minimal level of stability?
