RSSC SG: latest Policy Recommendations available online

Vienna, Austria, July 23, 2020 - The Policy Recommendations to the most recent virtual workshop of the PfP Consortium Study Group "Regional Stability in the South Caucasus" (RSSC) are now published. It is the outcome of an RSSC Extraordinary Virtual Roundtable, held on 25 June 2020, on the topic “Assessing and Mitigating the Impact of the COVID-19 Global Crisis in the South Caucasus Region”.

The paper examines the political and economic situation in the region as well as security issues. Associated to these topics, the paper offers some general and country-specific suggestions on conflict management, conflict resolution, and regional cooperation.

Additionally, we would like to point out that the proceedings of the 20th RSSC Workshop, which was conducted from 7 to 10 November 2019 in Reichenau/Rax, Austria, is also available online. Speakers from the region were required to concentrate on what outcomes and conditions could break the current deadlocks in moving towards peace and regional stability. Although deadlocks in South Caucasus conflict resolution were hardly broken, fresh consensus emerged among participants inter alia on: commonly held interests being defined and leveraged as confidence building to facilitate rapprochement and eventually lead to conflict resolution; administrative and identity issues being maintained cleanly separated; and the need to fully de-politicize issues addressed by peacebuilding initiatives.
