Iran, Türkiye, and the South Caucasus: Changing Roles

Georgian Studies Seminar
Event Format
In person
CGIS South, S354, 1730 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02138

Both Iran and Türkiye are important regional actors in the South Caucasus, with centuries-long political, economic, and cultural ties with the region. Internal dynamics in the South Caucasus in recent years, and major geopolitical events such as the wars in Ukraine and Middle East, create new strategic realities with implications for all the actors involved. Our guest speakers will discuss Iran's and Türkiye’s interests in the South Caucasus. What are their political and economic perspectives on the region? What are the implications for Georgia?
