“Archipelago Caucasus”: myths and real-politic
The book is interesting for colleagues who are supporters of the integration processes in the Caucasus. It is useful both for political and public figures, as well as for representatives of the scientific and analytical community. The authors express their hope that the publication can play the role of a manual for students and postgraduates. It can also be used by peacekeeping organizations to plan projects in new dimensions and formats different from the existing ones. The ideas of regionalism are viewed as a peacebuilding potential in the context of a clash between supporters of globalization and ethno-centrists, on the basis of which a unified system of regional security can be built in the future.

"Pseudo-conflicts and quasi-peacemaking in the Caucasus"
The book consists of two parts - the main study and 27 articles by renowned experts, researchers, and public figures who have been working on these problems for many years.
The study "Pseudo-conflicts and quasi-peacemaking in the Caucasus" analyzes the Tskhinvali conflict itself - from its name and geography of distribution, ending with its structure. It presents an innovative approach to describing conflicts and peacekeeping processes (using the example of the Tskhinvali conflict).
The publication was prepared within the framework of the project "Information support of the peacekeeping process for the settlement of the Tskhinvali conflict" in 2009, supported by the Open Society Georgia Foundation.
