Abstract

Even in today's globalizing world where many traditional barriers to communication seem to be disappearing, conflicts about territorial and ethnic borders continue to bedevil many regions of the world. The Caucasus region—both North and South—stands out in terms of active or latent disputes about territorial and ethnic borders. A number of geopolitical and historical factors, coupled with the new dynamics of international and regional relations in the post-Soviet area, account for this situation. Indeed, it could be argued safely that the Caucasus' current predicament is the result of it's turbulent history, especially the period related to the Soviet domination of the region.
