South Caucasus divergent identities and “broken region” The best alternative to
maintain stability in South Caucasus is regional integration. Theoretically, it helps
to overcome internal difficulties by providing a broader context for resolving all
sorts of contradictions. Common institutions compensate for state weaknesses,
helping to cope with the security dilemma. Integration can convert economic
interdependence between states into political harmony [16]. It is a slow process
with no ...

It is because of a common perception of Russia's identity that the Caucasus has
become an important alternative for energy resources. Identities of Caucasian
countries – inhabited by nonSlavs, covering tiny territories and organised around
small states, etc. – are quite different from Russia's. Their policies are especially
considered as relatively more open to collaboration with the West. NATO could
thus have a sense of collective identity with the Caucasus and some expectations
that ...

It is all too easy to forget that it took Europe two World Wars, a Cold War and the
loss of Empire to generate the norms and identities that rule its contemporary
patterns of desecuritisation (Buzan & Wæver, 2003: 352–356). On the
argumentative side, a complex European security identity has emerged,
basedinno small parton 'metasecuritisation', thesecuritisation of past,

arealmost entirely lacking.In terms ...

However, in spite of the lack of an internal common regional identity, the South
Caucasus continues to be dealt with as a single, unified entity by organisations
such as the EU and understanding of the South Caucasus as a coherent 'region'
has tended to be defined by the actions ... State-level initiatives that include all
three South Caucasus states are generally advanced by external actors and are
hindered by the complex political realities of regional relations and security

This chapter suggests that there are three main ways in which international
relations theories can be useful in analysing the EU's security policy in the region
. These are 1) a combination of conceptual and/or theoretical paradigms, 2) their
prioritization and 3) their sequencing. The chapter primarily makes use of the first
mode by arguing that the incapacity of the Union to positively transcend the
South Caucasian security environment is a result of its postmodern identity,
which clashes ...

Ukraine, Moldova and the South Caucasian states are a borderland between
both spaces trying to define themselves in independent, rather than auxiliary,
terms. 1. The notion of security identity In order to analyze the security
constellations within the Black Sea region the concept of security identity might
be a useful tool. Security identity is a result of the combination of social structures
with 'traditional' security studies. The concept of identity, alongside norms, ideas
etc., included in the ...
