A 2020 Vision for the Black Sea Region


A Report by the Commission on the Black Sea

The Black Sea region is a contested neighbourhood and the subject of intense debate. This reflects the changing dynamics of the region, its complex realities, the interests of outsiders and the region's relations with the rest of the world. Its strategic position, linking north to south and east to west, as well as its oil, gas, transport and trade routes are all important reasons for its increasing relevance. Despite heightened interest in the area however, the region's real priorities and needs are still being largely ignored. The Commission on the Black Sea was formed to suggest ways for this increasingly important but volatile region to move in the direction of cooperation and collaboration. It was formed to provide policy-oriented research on the challenges and opportunities of the Black Sea region and to suggest ways to secure its peace and prosperity. We are happy to announce the final report by the Commission on the Black Sea "A 2020 Vision for the Black Sea Region".
