The russian-georgian war: impact on the change of the international relations
October 8, 2009
The Russian-Georgian war in August 2008 has raised numerous questions about the future of the Wider Black Sea Region, and even the new changes that such a move is showing in the International Relations architecture: are we moving back to spheres of influence, exclusive intervention areas, at least for Russia, do we have a new Russia aiming and capable of becoming a global power again, what is the space of the global balance and of the relations EU/Russia, what is the perception of the countries in the region linked to their future and to the relations with Russia. In this respect we already drafted an assessment of the decision making in crisis during the Russian-Georgian war after study tours in Georgia, Ukraine, Republic of Moldova, working with experts in the region. Now our aim in to see what happen after one year of Obama administration, what is the situation two years after in a final conference that also will point out Romania’s perception on the war and on the processes that developed afterwards.
