Ronald Grigor Suny – The Pawn of the Great Powers: The East-West Competition for Caucasia

Caucasia has become an area of contention, like much of post-Soviet Eurasia, between the East and West. The South Caucasus has provided the first opportunity for Russia to demonstrate its will to prevent the United States, NATO, and the European Community from penetrating the southern tier of the former USSR 다운로드. Russia’s policy in Caucasia is not a program of imperial control, but rather a determined effort to contain or even roll back the influence of other powers, most importantly, the United States and NATO in the regions closest to Russia’s borders 짠짜라 다운로드. Up until August 2008 it used primarily ‘‘soft power’’ vigorously to prevent other powers from increasing their influence in the region. In August it demonstrated it was prepared, when pushed, to use ‘‘hard power.’’ The Russo– Georgian War was a watershed in East–West relations with a more assertive Russia willing to take on its more powerful competitors visual studio 2015 iso.

Niklas Nilsson – The October 2012 Elections and the Role of Democracy in Georgia’s Foreign Policy

This paper explains why democratization has obtained a central role in Georgia’s foreign policy since 2003. The paper’s main argument is that Georgia’s pursuit of integration with the Euro-Atlantic security community and building a strong relationship with the U.S 다운로드. required a strong emphasis on Georgia’s international image as a democratic reformer. The paper also argues that the outcome of Georgia’s parliamentary elections in October 2012 should be understood in this perspective 피싱마스터 다운로드. The fact that the elections were free and fair enough to allow for the opposition’s victory is attributable to the ruling party’s perceived need to maintain Georgia’s international image as a democratic reformer 다운로드.

George Khelashvili – Georgia’s Foreign Policy Impasse. Is Consensus Crumbling?

This paper is an attempt to analyze what has underpinned Georgia ’s foreign policy consensus and how likely it is to persist in the face of mounting difficulties concerning Georgia’s international standing 스마트 메이커 다운로드. The explanation for foreign policy persistence includes the Georgian president’s grip on power, the intransigence of the Russian leadership toward improving relations with Tbilisi, a lack of practical cooperative areas in Russian-Georgian relations, and the government’s motivation to stay its course under conditions of international uncertainty 다운로드. However, the broad ideological consensus regarding Georgia’s foreign policy stance may be weakening.

Lili di Puppo – Between Hesitation and Commitment: The EU and Georgia after the 2008 War

One major repercussion of the Russian-Georgian war of August 2008 was a significant increase in the EU’s presence in Georgia. With the launch of the Eastern Partnership in May 2009, the deployment of an EU monitoring mission in Georgia and the EU’s participation in the Geneva talks, EU-Georgian relations appear to have entered a new stage 다운로드.
