The year 2018 has been a ferment of activity for the South Caucasus. In April the Georgian government submitted a reconciliation initiative to Abkhazia and South Ossetia. At the same time a series of demonstrations and protests related to the appointment of Serzh Sargsyan as Prime Minister took place in Yerevan, referred to as the Armenian "Velvet Revolution”. And Tbilisi became the scene of mass demonstration in late spring after some incidents of police violence in night clubs.
At the 18th Workshop of the Regional Stability in the South Caucasus Study Group experts from the region and beyond discussed the latest political events, taking into consideration the perspectives of the different actors and conflict parties, and tried to identify possibilities for peace building within the region. The speakers’ contributions collected in the related Study Group Information publication analyse the current political situation in the South Caucasus and give an outlook on potential steps towards a peaceful conflict resolution in the region.
