21CQ is interested in all of the 15 successor countries of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), but also in the strategic health and stability of this critical region. Key objectives for this tranche of 21CQ work include:
ensuring a long-term and sustainable peace between Russia and Ukraine.
resolving the various frozen conflicts in the post-Soviet space.
building bridges between Russia, the EU, Asia and North America.
promoting a Pax Arctica in which Russia is a productive and peaceable partner with other Arctic states (see 21CQ’s work on Arctic Futures).
improving the quality of governance and public administration in all post-Soviet states.
21CQ will be making its arguments and interventions in support of its goals through conferences, briefings, publications, private and public interventions, as well as Track 1, Track 1.5 and Track 2 initiatives in the region and around the world.
