2nd int'l confab on Iran-Russia relations to be held

Tehran, IRNA- The Center for Central Eurasia Studies (of the University of Tehran) and the Caucasus Studies Institute, in cooperation with their partners, including Allameh Tabataba’i University, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), and the Iranian Association for Regional Studies will hold the second international conference on Iran – Russia Relations in the Light of New Regional Developments.

The conference will be held on February 28, 2022, and the abstract submission deadline is on August 21, 2021.
In recent years, significant developments have been taken place in the Eurasian region that has affected the interests and security of all regional actors. The interventions of actors outside the region have played a significant role in both escalating tensions and undermining stability and security in the region. In order to reduce the negative effects of tensions on regional security and stability and realization of the interests of the countries of the region, the need for regional cooperation is increasingly apparent. In recent years, Iran and Russia, as two friendly and neighboring countries, have had successful and constructive cooperation in resolving a number of important crises in their neighborhood, especially in West Asia, However, the capacities of bilateral and multilateral cooperation between the two countries, both in the relations between the two countries and at the regional and international level, are much greater, and of course, there are many obstacles in the way of increasing cooperation between the two countries. Therefore, it seems that the discussion and dialogue between Foreign Relations Specialists and academic elites are necessary to find common interests and introducing solutions for problems, and designing mechanisms for multilateral cooperation to reduce tensions and achieve peace, stability, and cooperation in the region.
The themes of the conference are:
Iran, Russia, and Afghanistan after the withdrawal of International forces
Recent geopolitical developments in the South Caucasus; involved actors, opportunities, and obstacles to the cooperation between Iran and Russia
Prospects for instability and crisis in Central Asia and the Caucasus; The role of Iran and Russia in preventing and resolving those crises
Moscow's attitude towards Tehran's activism in Russia’s “Near Abroad”
Necessities of Iran-Russia cooperation in West Asia
Areas of cooperation between Iran and Russia in regional and international arrangements and organizations
Iran-Russia relations in the shadow of competition between the East-West and North-South international corridors
The Caspian Sea; an area for cooperation or competition?
The impact of Media and Cyberspace on Iran-Russia relations at the domestic, regional, and international levels
