The conference brings together researchers in Caucasus studies for a discussion on current developments in the region. How are these dynamics to be understood and explained from political, anthropological, historical, linguistic and cultural perspectives?

Papers are organized into thematic sections, such as Armed conflicts and migration, Migration and maintenance of cultural identities, Language contact and migration, Transitional identities, Caucasian diasporas, Caucasus in regional and global politics. We welcome multidiciplinary papers and also encourage presentations of research in progress. The program includes possibilities for poster presentations.

The conference is organized by Caucasus Studies at the Department of International Migration and Ethnic Relations (IMER), Malmö University, Sweden, in cooporation with the Center for Caucasus Studies at Øresund University. The conference is supported by Sida (Swedish International Development Agency).
