Foreign Policy Talks Series: Developments in the South Caucasus: Regional Perspectives

27 Kasım 2020

The aim of this new initiative is to reach the general public as well as specialist audiences with informed assessments on the state of our world. It is an extension of the work being carried out both by the Center for International and European Studies (CIES) at Kadir Has University and the International Relations Council of Turkey (IRCT), of which Panorama is one of its many initiatives.

As both partners believe that the study and understanding of International Relations should not be limited to academic audiences only, this forum was created to reach the general public.

The Foreign Policy Talks will be stand-alone discussions on topics that are newsworthy in the international context. They will be primarily delivered online via regular webinars, while some will encompass, whenever the circumstances permit, both a live audience and an online discussion. They will also be recorded and made available through the websites and social media feeds of the partner institutions.

The fifth installment of the Foreign Policy Talks series will focus on “Foreign Policy Talks Series: Developments in the South Caucasus: Regional Perspectives” where actively engaged professionals will assess the state of latest crisis in the South Caucasus.

The meeting took place on Friday, 20 November 2020 between 18:00-19:30 (GMT +3) on Zoom.
