Vicken Cheterian – Georgia’s Rose Revolution: Change or Repetition? Tension between State-Building and Modernization Projects

This paper develops the specificity of the Georgian situation and make the case that what is happening in Georgia seems to be closer to the classic examples of revolutions than the stalemate in Serbia, Ukraine, or Kyrgyzstan. Author argues that the Rose Revolution was a political revolution similar to the other Colour Revolutions, yet it distinguishes itself by not stopping with the overthrow of the old regime and a project to reform the state but continuing to push for change of the elite in power by pushing for radical social-economic reforms.
