The South Caucasus is composed of countries and political entities that are nominally democratic. One of the cardinal features of a free society is freedom of expression, freedom of the press and of opinion. However, in case of conflict, the media tends to subordinate itself to the needs of the state and become its instrument to push certain political agendas. The aim of this publication is to see whether the media and other non-governmental actors can have a constructive role in enabling the conflicting sides in the South Caucasus to break the cycle of tension and conflict.
