Episode 416 Ukraine, Caucasus as Peace Zone?

With Russia’s war against Ukraine underway, four guests discuss the notion of creating a zone of peace, not only in Ukraine but also in the south Caucasus. Christopher Mitchell, who has studied peace zones as an academic, meets with two of his former students: Irakli Kakabadze, who now runs a Gandhian institute in Tbilisi, Georgia, and Guguli Maghradze, formerly a member of Georgia’s parlliament and now director of a peace program at Tbilisi University. A Canadian peace activist, Lyn Adamson, joins in the discussion, much of which involves an assessment of the potential for creating a zone of neutral countries.

If Ukraine had chosen to be Neutral, could all this mess been avoided?
