'Dark Water': Security in the Black Sea region

On 15 October at Cripps Court auditorium, Magdalene College, The Cambridge Review of International Affairs, in collaboration with the Forum on Geopolitics, hosted 'Dark Water: Security in the Black Sea Region'.

On 15 October 2015 the Cambridge Review of International Affairs with the Forum on Geopolitics, hosted an interdisciplinary panel entitled Dark Waters: Security in the Black Sea Region. Speakers included Vice Admiral Ian Corder, the UK Military Representative to NATO and the EU, Dr. Anna Dolidze, Deputy Defence Minister of the Republic of Georgia, and Dr. Slawomir Raszewski, Department of War Studies, Kings College London. We were further delighted to include Mr. Bruce Clark, Religion & Ethics Correspondent and former International Security Editor at The Economist, as moderator.

The panelists addressed a myriad of security concerns facing the Black Sea region, including but not limited to issues of maritime jurisdiction, energy security as related to the highly politicised commodity of gas, and increasing terrorist and separatist threats. All panelists addressed the growing role Russia played in the region, citing Russia's actions as a growing military concern and calling for a need to deter Russia's "adventurism" in the Black Sea region.
