CIS Integration Trends

Russia and the Former Soviet South

By Mark Webber

Russia’s increasingly assertive foreign policy agenda for the CIS region has raised questions about efforts to transform CIS structures into effective mechanisms for inter-state cooperation. This book examines the debate on these issues and the feasibility of the proposals for political, economic, and security integration under consideration in Russia and other CIS states. The author assesses the constraints on integration posed by the diversity of the Former Soviet South states and the different responses to integration proposals.
