International Conference on “The EU, Central Asia & the South Caucasus: new approaches on regional and international cooperation”

On 23/24 May 2019, the 4th Inter­na­tional EUCACIS Confe­rence “The EU, Central Asia and the South Caucasus: new approaches on regional and inter­na­tional coope­ration” will take place at Park Hotel in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Experts from the European Union, the South Caucasus and Central Asia will come together to discuss conflicts in the South Caucasus, take a close look at the latest events in Central Asia as well as explore possi­bi­lities for coope­ration and dialogue between the European Union, the South Caucasus and Central Asia in three different panels. The confe­rence will be a great oppor­tunity for inter­na­tional resear­chers and practi­tioners to meet, exchange, and strengthen the bonds between the three regions. The EUCACIS fellows are strongly involved in the confe­rence organi­sation and will also present their scien­tific research to the inter­na­tional experts.

The inter­na­tional high-ranking confe­rence is the fourth and last confe­rence of the PhD Programme EUCACIS for Postgra­duates and Doctoral Resear­chers in Central Asia and the South Caucasus, which the IEP and the Centre inter­na­tional de formation européenne (CIFE) organise in close coope­ration with the OSCE Academy Bishkek.
