CACI FORUM: Iran and the Caucasus

Thursday, March 14, 2013

CACI FORUM

"Central Asia-Caucasus Institute"

Iran and the Caucasus

Iran's expanding activities with respect to the three independent states of the Caucasus have scarcely been noticed, but warrant close attention. To what extent are these normal and simply a revival of the commercial and cultural relationships dating back centuries before the Russian Empire expanded into the region? To what extent are they, rather, the product of destabilizing ideological or geopolitical aspirations in Tehran today? And, if the latter, what are their broader implications to the region and to the world order and how should the U.S. respond?
