Tedo Japaridze & Ilia Roubanis – Tbilisi’s Relevance to Washington: What Is, Where Is, and What Can Be

This article reflects on the disparity of perceptions in the West over Georgia’s political trajectory since its first-ever peaceful transfer of power in October 2013. Going beyond current affairs, the authors examine the significance of Georgia, primarily to Washington, in the context of greater developments in the diplomatic landscape. They argue that while the post-Soviet space has become increasingly multipolar and less convincingly multilateral, there is a need to go beyond a “reset” between former foes and a “reload” of the structure of regional alliances.
