Ethnic Dinner and Discussion: The Caucasus

The Caucasus

The countries and regions of the Caucasus all have strong national identities but have long lived in the shadow of their larger neighbors: Russia, Iran and Turkey. How does this influence the Caucasus of today? How do the region’s energy resources play into its relations with the outside world?

Discussion Points:

  • DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES
  • ECONOMICS AND ENERGY
  • RUSSIA’S REASSERTION OF POWER

Tentative Schedule:

6:30 pm: Armenian Style dinner & Introduction of Great Decisions Discussions Series (starts January 2012)

7:15 pm: Video Presentation (30 min)

7:45 pm: Discussion

The platform for this event will be taken from the Foreign Policy Association’s Great Decisions 2011 Topic: The Caucasus.

This discussion group has already been registered with The Foreign Policy Association as “United Nations Association-USA Nashville Cordell Hull Chapter Discussion Group”.
