Giorgi Badridze (Senior Fellow, Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies (GFSIS) and lecturer at Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University). The session was concluded with a Q&A session.
The third panel was a panel for a general evaluation.
The message that emanated from the conclusion was as follows:
- There is a potential for conflict in the region.
- Status quo is seen by some as the better of two evils.
- However, status quo is also seen as a zero-sum game.
- Cooperation obviously is a win-win situation and there is cooperation even if it is exclusionary.
- However, exclusion is not the desired option and cooperation is open to all.
- To achieve inclusive cooperation, the region needs to develop “more trust in itself.”
