The South Caucasus - Security, Energy and Europeanization Hardback
Edited by Meliha B. (Middle East Technical University at Ankara, Turkey) Altunisik, Oktay F. (Middle East Technical University at Ankara, Turkey) Tanrisever
Part of the BASEES/Routledge Series on Russian and East European Studies series
This book explores developments in the countries of the South Caucasus - Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia - since the EU included the region in the European Neighbourhood Policy in 2003.
It considers issues related to energy, ethnic conflict, steps towards regional integration, and, above all, security - including the involvement of Russia, Iran, Turkey and the United States.
It assesses the key importance of energy, argues that the prospects for regional integration are weak, and contends that while the approach of Europe and the United States has been confused and weak, not holding out great hope of EU or NATO membership, Russia's interest and involvement in the region is strong, and growing.
