What Do Moscow's Proposed Security Arrangements Mean for Central Asia and the Caucasus?
You may view a recorded version of this CACI Forum below or on the SAIS events YouTube channel.
Moscow is aggressively demanding that the West accept a new security architecture that would take account the new "realities on the ground" created by Russia's de-facto occupation of two Georgian regions, annexation of Crimea, and attempt to create new separatist statelet in Eastern Ukraine. Our speakers will examine these demands against the death of the Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) treaty and the dysfunctionality of OSCE and other elements of security umbrella that were supposed to maintain peace in the Caucasus and Eastern Europe. Speakers will also consider the West's possible responses.
Countries in Central Asia, Caucasus and Mongolia are at the crossroads of choosing their destinies. What will be the future of the region? What will be the role of Eurasian Economic Union? Will China’s role in Central Asia grow?
CACI Rumsfeld fellows will discuss possible scenarios of development in the Eurasia region, with relevant political, social, and economic implications, based on their personal experience in public sector and business.
