U.S. Interests and Cooperative Security in Abkhazia and Karabakh: Engagement versus Commitment?

Robert M. Cutler

The complete chapter is available in  Printer-friendly  full text.

Abstract

The chapter examines the evolution of U.S. interests in three South Caucasus conflict situations in the 1990s. It briefly assesses the relevant national security doctrine, such as it existed, then moves to survey U.S. policy behavior in the selected cases. On that basis is assesses the applicability of “cooperative security,” already animating certain signficant aspects of U.S. security policy, to the cases in question. In the process it disentangles the meanings of cooperative security, engagement, and commitment, arriving at conclusions as to their interrelationships in the cases to hand. In conclusion, the article points out the significance of financial stabilization for the countries concerned and what can be done in this respect, including possibilities for enhancing their cooperation among themselves the assistance of international and possibly regional institutions.
