With the launch of the Europe-Asia Studies’ Special Issue on the 'Many Faces of the Caucasus' (vol. 64, issue 9) and the landmark Parliamentary elections in Georgia in October 2012 it seems a great opportunity to discuss the state of the Caucasian Studies in the UK and why we need to be studying the Caucasus region.
CREES also has great honour to welcome Georgia’s Ambassador to the UK Giorgi Badridze to the University of Birmingham.

Among our speakers are:

  • Giorgi Badridze (ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of Georgia to the UK)
  • Nino Kemoklidze (CREES)
  • Cerwyn Moore (POLSIS)
  • Jeremy Smith (Karelian Institute, University of Eastern Finland)
  • Galina Yemelianova (CREES)

Come along and don’t miss the chance of tasting authentic Georgian wines!
