Columbia University conference and presentation

Earlier this week, Tom De Waal organized a superb two day conference on the South Caucasus After 20 Years. The sessions were very well attended and the level of analysis critical and realistic, with next to no nationalist posturing or polemics. See his recent commentary on the subject.
