WP2: Reconceptualising Democracy and Security in the Caucasus


  • To investigate and (re)conceptualise, on the basis of extensive empirical research in the territories, the link between security and democracy as a basis for understanding intra-state and regional security challenges;
  • To create an intellectual bridge between actors across the region, including both domestic and external actors, to strengthen future EU external action policy;
  • To use empirical data generated by other WPs to underpin further studies on such topics as costs of conflict, exchanges across conflict lines between regional actors, and assessment of needs in current and future EU policy and assistance programmes.
