Johan Galtung – Some Observations on the Caucasus

In this text of a lecture delivered by Johan Galtung in Tbilisi 1997, the author discusses issues of conflict and cooperation in Caucasus. In the first part he identifies the structural causes of the Caucasian conflicts by comparison with the Balkans wars. Then, Galtung distinguishes three cultural traits that pose obstacles for the Caucasian peace process. Finally, he argues for deeper institutionalized cooperation among the states and nations of Caucasus.
