The Russian-Georgian Conflict

The Russian-Georgian Conflict

The Stockholm Centre for Eastern European Studies (SCEEUS) at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) invited to a discussion on Georgia and the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali/South Ossetia.

After 30 years of regained independence, Georgia still struggles to regain control over its internationally recognized territory. The Georgian breakaway regions of Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia are de facto occupied by Russia, albeit Russia denies involvement in the conflicts. What can be done to restore Georgia’s territorial integrity? What weaknesses has the current conflict resolution design? How is Georgia’s relationship with Russia?  

Diana JanseSenior Fellow at the Stockholm Free World Forum. Sweden's ambassador to Georgia, 2010-2014. Janse is the author of the SCEEUS Report on Human Rights and Security No 7 - Georgia and the Russian Aggression.
