Conflict as an Instrument in Internal Political Struggles. Secession Crises in the Post-Soviet  Area

December 2-4, 2010 - organised by Department of Social Sciences of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Secession crises in post-Soviet states were shaped by heterogeneous dependencies and have different cause-effect relations. Most research on this topic is from an external perspective. This conference will focus on the internal perspective – the impact these conflicts have on the political regimes, political institutions, on the economy, the political culture, the society, and the process of consolidation. With the particular emphasis on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict we will deal with the directly involved states of Armenia and Azerbaijan and the relations between both countries. But also a comparative view on other conflicts like Abkhazia, Transnistria and South-and the political systems of the involved countries seems to be worthwhile especially because of the wide differences concerning the initial situation, the course of conflict, and the actors involved in these conflicts.
