EUCACIS Online Paper No. 3: Azad Garibov — Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey: Advancing the Military Dimension of the Trilateral Partnership

Azad Garibov traces the evolution of the trila­teral partnership between Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey that started to be insti­tu­tio­na­lized at the beginning of the 2010s. While initially the coope­ration was mainly focused on military prepa­redness to protect the energy-transport infra­st­ructure in emergency cases, it gradually expanded to encompass other fields. The policy paper examines the key issues of what is the rationale behind, obstacles before and oppor­tu­nities ahead of the trila­teral Azerbaijan-Georgia-Turkey defense partnership. It offers possible further steps to more compre­hen­sively utilize the oppor­tu­nities provided by the trila­teral partnership.
