Joel Lazarus – Neo-Liberal State Building and Western ‘Democracy Promotion’: the Case of Georgia

In this paper, author argues that, rather than promoting democracy, Western foreign policy and diplomatic strategies and aid interventions have actually served to reinforce what Levitsky and Way (2002, 2010) call ‘competitive authoritarianism’ and exacerbate political instability and conflict in the country.
