The South Caucasus – Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan – plays a key geopolitical and security role in Eurasia, the region between East and West, where the interests of Russia, the EU, the US, Turkey and Iran converge and collide. China has been building political and economic relations with the region, investing in this important crossroads through its Belt and Road Initiative. How have the interests of the big powers come to focus on this strategically significant part of the world? How are these geopolitical forces playing out in the context of Covid-19? AsiaGlobal Fellows from the South Caucasus will share on-the-ground perspectives on political, economic and security developments in the region and insights into the challenges it faces.
