Chapter Summary

In order to form a stable state, it is necessary to minimize conflicts. In this respect, state building and conflict resolution go hand in hand. International intergovernmental organizations play a key role in supporting the peace process in the Caucasus. This is done through mediation, but also by empowering the states, inviting them to become member of the organization, and monitor compliance with prerequisites of the democratization process such as the rule of law and respect for human rights. The organizations analyzed in this chapter are NATO, the UN, OSCE, Council of Europe and the European Union. Regional powers have a special interest in the Caucasus, for several reasons, such as keeping influence in the region, stabilizing the region, economic interests. The Russian Federation, Turkey and Iran are the obvious regional players. However, the US also plays a significant role in the region, and therefore is added to the list.
