The Gorchakov Fund and the Georgian-Russian Public Center are on the air of the anniversary broadcast of “Geopolitical Kitchen” on Mediametrics Radio

05 September 2018

On September 9, events in the Caucasus region as well as what public diplomacy can offer for securing full-scale peace in the Caucasus will be discussed during radio show “Geopolitical Kitchen with Igor Shatrov”.

The 100th broadcast of “Geopolitical Kitchen” will be aired in cooperation with the Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund. We will discuss topics associated with the Caucasus Dialogue, a forum organized by the Gorchakov Fund and opening on September 9 at Tourist-Recreational Complex “Arkhyz” in Karachay-Cherkessia. This event has already become a tradition. Every year it brings together young diplomats, political scientists, economists, lawyers, journalists, public figures from the countries of the region. Together with top scientists-specialists in Caucasian studies and other well-known experts in the field of international cooperation and public diplomacy, they discuss regional and geopolitical problems and develop proposals on current issues of the international policy.

How did the situation in the Caucasus region change 10 years after the events of August 2008 and how did Russian-Georgian relations transform during that period of time? Why did Angela Merkel visit Caucasus capitals and who is behind the events in Armenia? What tools of public diplomacy are effective under conditions of absent diplomatic relations and where – in avant-garde or derriere-garde – of the foreign policy is the public policy now?

These and other questions will be discussed with the participants of the Caucasus Dialogue – 2018, Executive Director of the Primakov Georgian-Russian Public Center, member of the Parliament of Georgia of the 7th convocation Dmitry Lortkipanidze and expert of the Gorchakov Fund Victoria Puzanova.
