Alexander Kupatadze – Police Reform in Georgia

This paper analyses the trajectory of post-Rose Revolution transition in the criminal justice system of Georgia and the way in which the rule of law has been undermined for the sake of building a strong state. The achievements and shortcomings of Georgian police reform are discussed and it is argued that the reforms have mainly targeted „low policing‟ in order to meet the key concerns of the citizenry while „high policing‟ remained above the law and a crucial safeguard for the ruling regime. The paper demonstrates that over the long term the anti-crime policies may have been failing and the zero-tolerance policy and prison experience of delinquents could have contributed in the displacement of the crime problem to the future.
