RESEARCH: The 2012 Caucasus Barometer Is Now Available! (

(crrccenters.orgCRRC’s 2012 Caucasus Barometer (CB) regional dataset is now available on the CRRC website. The survey was conducted between October 26 and November 29, 2012 and consisted of a representative sample of 6,715 respondents in Armenia (2,384), Azerbaijan (1,829), and Georgia (2,502).

In addition to the CB’s annual questions about political, social and economic attitudes,  the 2012 survey asked new questions about opinions towards Stalin as part of a project with Carnegie Endowment for International Peace entitled, “The Stalin Puzzle: Deciphering Post-Soviet Public Opinion.” A presentation of the project’s publication, co-authored by Thomas de Waal, Lasha Bakradze, Lev Gudkov and Maria Lipman, was held in Washington DC on March 1, 2013. An English version of the publication is available at the link above and Russian and Georgian versions will soon be available online.

In addition, Dr. Robia Charles of CRRC gave a presentation of general CB 2012 results on February 22, 2013 at the Center for Black Sea-Caspian Studies at American University in Washington DC.  Local presentations of the CB 2012 in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan will be announced shortly.
