Intra- and Inter-Societal Sources of Instability in the Caucasus and EU Opportunities to Respond

ISSICEU aims at exploring various security-related issues in the Caucasus region and adjacent countries. The interdisciplinary research project stems from a successful bid for a call of the European Commission on “Security and democracy in the neighbourhood: The case of the Caucasus”. The ISSICEU consortium is led by the Center for Governance and Culture in Europe at the University of St. Gallen and comprises a total of eight research institutions based in Germany, Switzerland, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 613004.
