Description:

Based in Prague and funded by mainly American sources, this site offers timely reports on the northern Caucasus region (Chechnya), "focusing on three specific areas: human rights, humanitarian aid conditions and media access and coverage." Created to help pressure Western and Russian policymakers to work harder towards achieving peace and security in the region, the site is a good resource for anyone interested in the conflict. The main page fatures the latest updates, mostly short articles, interviews, and brief news stories. Visitors can also browse current and archived articles by topical section: Human Rights, Relief Aid, Media, Destruction, Politics, and Conflict Info. While the site is unlikely to receive any thanks from the Russian authorities, it is a useful resource for students, scholars, or anyone interested in events occuring in a region that has slipped beneath the world media radar.
