About Us

Welcome to commonspace.eu

Commonspace.eu was launched by LINKS (DAR) in 2011. Since then commonspace.eu has been providing daily news and analysis of events in the wider Caucasus region and beyond, in English and Russian.

We are pleased to announce that as from 1 May 2019 the ownership and management of commonspace.eu has been transferred to LINKS Europe Stichting, operating from The Hague, in the Netherlands. Over the course of the next months we will be unrolling a number of changes that we hope will make the commonspace.eu web portal even more interesting and informative. The editorial team and editorial policy remain unchanged.

Fluwelen Burgwal 58, 2511 The Hague, Netherlands.
