This international conference will be organised as part of the EU-FP7 CASCADE project (www. cascade-caucasus.eu). It will critically re-examine the link between security and democratisation in the Caucasus, in a context of growing authoritarianism and new protest movements, as well as conflict transformation resulting from broader political upheavals in the wider neighbourhood. This re-examination will be informed by a combination of macro- and micro-approaches.
Paper proposals (250 words) together with a short bio (100 words) should be submitted by 15 April 2016. The authors of accepted proposals will be notified by May 20th, 2016.
The conference will take place in Brussels (Université Libre de Bruxelles) on 20 and 21 October 2016.
