||Projects and Prospects for Cooperation in Eurasia. Collection of Articles
The present collection of articles "Projects and Prospects for Cooperation in Eurasia" is based on the proceedings of the international conference “Projects and Prospects for Cooperation in Eurasia”, organized by the Lithuanian Centre for Geopolitical Studies and Carnegie Moscow Center. This conference, that took place in Vilnius in February 2009, focused on the shifts that began to occur in the post-Soviet region in the aftermath of the August 2008 Russia-Georgia war and during the global financial crisis. These shifts have affected virtually all aspects of inter-state relations: political, economic, security and humanitarian issues. All of them had a strong impact on the already existent tendencies in this region, and also gave impetus to new developments and processes both within states and in relations between them. The authors, representing different countries, try to offer their visions of only a few, albeit in their opinion most significant, issues that were discussed at the conference. At the same time, they are not limited by the discussions that took place in Vilnius, as they also refer to facts and events that took place after the conference. Their findings and conclusions can thus complement and broaden those discussions’ results. Obviously, national and geographic differences are reflected in the authors’ opinions on various processes that occur in the post-Soviet space. Perhaps such “optical” differences will help better realize the main goal of the present collection, namely to offer the reader a multidimensional view of the present trends in the region in their full complexity, with all their contradictions.
