Security in the Post-Soviet Space: A Brief Introduction

The countries of the Post-Soviet Space (i.e. the fifteen former Soviet republics which together once made up the USSR) are faced with a number of common security problems, in relation to various cultural, economic, military and/or political issues. In this one hour course, we will briefly survey six international organizations that have been created to deal with security issues throughout much of Eurasia: the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Measures in Asia (CICA), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), the Eurasian Group (EAG) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
