Security problems of Georgia and the Caucasus are frequently analysed in terms of conflict, geopolitics and pipeline diplomacy. This study, however, awards those aspects subsidiary roles and turn focus to national security actors, international structures and security cooperation. Hence, the objective of this study is to critically assess Georgia’s security as of the year 2003, by seeking to answer three separate questions, namely: 1. What is the current status of Georgian’s national security structures? 2. What are the current options and implications for Georgia concerning international security structures? 3. What long-term issues and risks are connected to the US-Georgian security cooperation?
