  Add to Calendar 2018-10-16 14:30 2018-10-16 17:00 Europe/Paris "Small States' View of World Order and Their Foreign Policy Governance" - A Conversation with Ilgar Gurbanov, Policy Leaders Fellow

For the Small States (SS) it is difficult to pursue an absolute independent foreign policy among competing regional/global powers in the contemporary international relations system. Because, the SS are usually perceived a weak enough for being vulnerable to the great powers’ imposition of will, manipulations and intimidations thus leaving less room for SS to maneuver in the system. Some of the SS's incoherent foreign-policy-behaviors cause risky consequences for them, and make them more prone to facing higher level of external threat and security dilemma; while few other SS prefer to pursue unemotional and less ideological track of foreign-policy-behavior with a strategic patience. This discussion will focus on the rational behind the small states' alliance choices vis-à-vis number of regional/global powers (Note: the foreign policies of the South Caucasus states - Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia - will be used as an example).

The event is open to the EUI community. Please register.
