Summer Academy
  International Conference "“Frozen” conflicts: solution perspectives, dynamics and consequences" material

2007 12 10

On 24-28 July 2007, the Lithuanian Centre for Geopolitical Studies and the Centre of International and Regional Policy of St.Petersburg organized a SummerAcademy in Dubingiai, Lithuania. Participants of the conference analyzed conflicts in Moldova and Trans-Dniester region, Georgia and Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as well as the role of the third countries in managing these conflicts. Professional political analysts, politicians, diplomats, representatives of public and civil organizations, youth from the Baltic States, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Trans-Dniester region (Moldova), Georgia, territories of Georgia - Abkhazia and South Ossetia investigated the reasons of conflicts in the post-soviet space, as well as their forms, dynamic and consequences, looked for possible solutions, ways for conflict regulation, involvement of relevant mediators etc.

During work sessions participants had an opportunity to listen to presentations of representatives of conflicting countries, Lithuania, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Poland on the situation in the zones of „frozen“ conflicts, on their consequences, possible ways for settling these conflicts as well as on the role of third countries (Russia, EU, different EU states, international organizations) in facilitating or continuing negotiations and looking for the ways out from the existing situation.

Working groups of the SummerAcademy have also prepared analysis of conflicts of Moldova and Trans-Dniester (Moldova), Georgia and Abkhazia (Georgia) and South Ossetia (Georgia), as well as scenarios for possible developments of events in these regions and on possible compromise acceptable to both parties in conflict.

According to organizers of the conference the key outcome of the executed work are efforts of different parties to talk and understand each other. The public initiative of the Summer Academy has extended the informative-analytical discourse on „frozen“ conflicts in the post-Soviet space of the EU countries (among them – Lithuania), which lack objective information on events and processes in these regions.
