Declarations of Independence in the Caucasus – 100 Years Anniversary Celebration

Following the disintegration of the Russian Empire and the turbulent political development during the end of the First World War, several entities that had been part of the Russian Empire, declared their independence in 1918. In the Caucasus this applies to Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia, as well as the North Caucasian Mountain Republic.

Hundred years have passed since these events and RUCARR will devote a one-day seminar commemorating this period and discussing the contemporary role and importance of these short-lived periods of independence.

The seminar includes presentations from researchers, politicians as well as representatives from the embassies of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan to Sweden. The two morning sessions are devoted to Georgia and to Azerbaijan, and the two afternoon sessions will focus on Armenia and the North Caucasus Mountain Republic
