Linkage and leverage : external actors and conflicts in the post-Soviet space
On 11 May 2012, the European Studies Centre, based at St Antony’s College (University of Oxford) hosted a one-day conference entitled “Linkage and Leverage: External Actors and Conflicts in the Post-Soviet Space”, organised by John Beyer and Dr Gwendolyn Sasse, and sponsored by the ESRC Knowledge Exchange Scheme (through a grant held in the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford). Two panel sessions looked at Russia’s and the EU’s involvement in conflicts and conflict resolution in the post-Soviet space from Moldova to Central Asia, three focussed on specific areas - Central Asia, the South Caucasus and Moldova. The discussion was framed by extending the concepts of “linkage and leverage”, developed by the political scientists Steven Levitsky and Lucan Way in the context of regime change (2005, 2010), to the role of external actors in conflict settings. This report provides a brief summary of the talks and discussions at the workshop.
