Abstract

This study attempts to discern the overall direction of regional reorganization in Eurasia through looking at regional cooperation and the strategies and roles of powers in the South Caucasus from a sub-regional point of view. This study will attempt to look at sub-regional level cooperation of the countries in the South Caucasus region and the strategies of powers in the region, through the rivalry and difficulties between the United States, Turkey and Russia brought about through their construction of oil pipeline routes in differing directions to transport oil from Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan to the world market, as well as the national strategies of the innerregional countries that are choosing this option.
