Coaching & Conflicts. — International Eurasian Movement. 2019. — 156 p.

Monograph covers a wide range of conflicts from military operations and political lobbying, social engineering and geo-economics to media propaganda, civil riots, and acts of terrorism, all considered through the general concept of Coaching War.

The cases of the coup d’état in Ukraine in 2011 which saw the use of swarming technology for street riots and the financing of non-governmental organizations from abroad; the manipulation of ethnic groups and opposition structures during the escalation of the armed conflict in Syria; the application of gender technologies as socio-political tools of influence in the Caucasus; and governance by influence through military presence and the institutionalization of cooperation between states are all examined.
