The aim of the Congress is to bring together experts and researchers of (primarily but not exclusively) the Black Sea regional states in order to analyze political, economic, social and cultural relations among the states of the Black Sea region.
In addition to the standard coastal states, other states that belong to the corridor carrying Caspian Energy sources to the west through the connection between Asia Europe (Albania, Serbia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan) are all considered as Black Sea states. In the contemporary world politics, Black Sea is a pivotal region for the global powers. Color revolutions are a case in point for they herald a new power struggle in the line of Baltic-Black Sea-Caspian Sea regions. Not only the U.S. and Russia but also other global and regional powers and coastal states and institutions are struggling for influence over the strategic depth of the Black Sea region.
