The Caucasus Policy Analysis Centre and LINKS (Dialogue, Analysis and Research) are going to host a round table discussion with the theme “Contextual challenges to efforts to eliminate the scourge of landmines and unexploded ordinance in the South Caucasus” on Monday, 8 April 2019.
The roundtable meeting will offer an opportunity for officials, diplomats, practitioners and opinion formers to take stock of current efforts to tackle the problem of landmines and unexploded ordinance in the South Caucasus, explore the challenges to this objective resulting from the unresolved conflicts in the region and explore future steps.
