At a time of particularly significant change in the world; protracted conflicts and other security and economic challenges, the conference sought to define policy options to develop conditions for safeguarding security in the South Caucasus. It took a comprehensive approach addressing strategic and regional security concerns; economic security; energy security and political security; intra-regional relations and the role of the international community.

A number of key politicians, officials, NGOs, academics, business people and conflict resolution experts gathered to seek to define policy options to develop conditions for safeguarding security in the South Caucasus. It took a comprehensive approach, addressing strategic and regional security concerns; economic security; energy security and political security; intra-regional relations and the role of the international community.

The aims were to assess initiatives and creative possibilities in three broad areas:

  • Regional security: what role should international organisations play in promoting security in the region?
  • Regional energy/economy: what are the opportunities for promoting intra-regional cooperation in energy and the economy?
  • Regional democratisation: what are the opportunities and challenges in promoting good governance and democracy?
