Peace in the South Caucasus remains precarious, but the security situation has started to improve. The region remains highly geopolitically fragmented as regional states pursue different foreign policies and have developed divergent security threat assessments. The regional balance of power is shared by Russia and Turkey, with US, EU, and few Middle Eastern actors interested to restore or increase their regional influence. The latest higher level engagements of Armenia and Azerbaijan have sent encouraging signals for the future of peace, while Georgia’s Peaceful Neighborhood Initiative needs to be developed and implemented. Although the latest RSSC SG workshops have generated actionable Policy Recommendations in support of conflict management and peace building, many questions remain as to how to move forward constructively.
