GVO: interview with Micael Bogar on using online media and tools in South Caucasus

Global Voices Online Caucasus editor interviews Micael Bogar on new media/conflict-resolution, with a particular focus on South Caucasus.
With three frozen conflicts and many ethnic fault lines, peace and stability in the South Caucasus often seems unreachable. After living and working in the the region for many years, Micael Bogar is now Projects Manager at the American University's Center for Social Media and speaks to Global Voices Online about the potential for new media tools to circumvent divisions and bring estranged neighbors together.
During the interview, as an example of using online media for alternative voices and minorities not reflected in mainstream press, they also refer to the emergence and influence of LGBT blogging in the region.
