Svante Cornell – War in Georgia, Jitters All Around

In this article, Svante Cornell argues that while the humanitarian consequences of the 2008 Russo-Georgian war do not compare with what transpired in Chechnya or Bosnia in the 1990s, the conflict arguably marked the most significant challenge to Europe’s security architecture since the end of the cold war. The author, then, explains some of the most important questions that have arised from this war: Why did this small war in the Caucasus happen, and who started it? What implications will it have for the South Caucasus, for the former Soviet Union more broadly, and for Europe as a whole?
