Abstract:

This doctoral project studies the challenges and perspectives of stateness of unrecognized post-Soviet states, the disclosure of which is of exceptional significance not only for the studied countries, but also for achieving regional and international peace and security.

In order to fully scrutinize the topic various methods such as: case-study, cluster and comparative analysis, inductive and deductive, qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis, factor and path analysis, cross-temporal comparison will be implemented within the study.
