Cascon Regions

CASCON divides the world into six regions. Region refers to the location of the dispute itself, particularly for contested territory, rather than the location of contesting parties. The region for a case is entered and displayed in the Case Detail window. The regions are:

  • Africa -- the whole continent and neighboring islands, with the exception of Egypt.
  • Europe -- the continent and adjacent islands, including Russia and Turkey.
  • Middle East --the ancient fertile crescent from Egypt across to Iran.
  • Pacific, East Asia, and Southeast Asia -- the western edge of the great Pacific basin, including the islands, the continent of Australia, and New Zealand.
  • South and Southwest Asia -- the Indian subcontinent and the mountainous and steppe areas to its north.
  • Western Hemisphere -- North, Central, and South America and nearby islands.
