"The Recent Crises Between Georgia and Russia" will be the topic of a panel discussion at the Ohio Northern University Phi Beta Delta International Forum in the Dicke Forum on Wednesday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m.

The panelists will describe and analyze the complex situation in the Caucasus and its ramifications for the United States, NATO, the EU and the neighbors of Russia. The panel will consist of ONU law professors Howard N. Fenton and Bryan H. Ward, political scientist Andrew Ludanyi, geographer David R. Smith, and Eliso Chabrava, a student of the ONU LL.M. program who received her law degree from the Ivane Javakhishvili State University in Tbilisi, Georgia, in 2003. She has been active in the Georgian Young Lawyers Association and other law reform groups in Georgia. Phi Beta Delta Coordinator Michael Loughlin will serve as moderator.

The panelists will delve into the geographic, ethnic and political diversity of this complex area, specific regional issues, and some of the geopolitical ramifications involved in analyzing this tragic yet fascinating confrontation.
