Zurück European Stability Initiative (ESI) - Weiter 

ESIESI is a research and policy institute, created in recognition of the need for independent, in-depth analysis of the complex issues involved in promoting stability and prosperity in Europe. ESI was founded in June 1999 by a multi-national group of practitioners and analysts with extensive experience in the regions it studied.

Since 2007 ESI has also been working on the Southern Caucasus (Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia).

 

 

Gerald Knaus is ESI founding Chairman. He studied in Oxford, Brussels and Bologna. He taught economics at the State University of Chernivtsi in Ukraine and worked for five years in Bulgaria and Bosnia for NGOs and international organizations. He was director of the Lessons Learned Unit of the EU Pillar of the UN Mission in Kosovo (from 2001 to 2004). He co-authored more than 60 ESI reports as well as many scripts for TV documentaries on South East Europe (www.returntoeurope.eu). Gerald Knaus has been based in Istanbul since 2004. He is a founding member of the European Council on Foreign Relations and associate fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard University Kennedy School where he also spent one year as a visiting fellow lecturing on state building and intervention.

Gerald Knaus writes a blog, the Rumeli Observer. On 20 July 2009 he and Piotr Zalewski wrote on Turkey-Armenia relations: "Red herrings in Turkish-Armenian Debate"
