    • Conflict over Abkhazia – To Be Continued?

    •  
    • Journal of Regional Security: Issue 3 - this paper is a piece from the academic journal published two times per annum by the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (BCSP), supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. JRS was established in 2006 and until 2012 was published by the name Western Balkans Security Observer.

      This paper analyzes the potential for maintaining the post-August War 2008 status quo in Abkhazia and explores possible transformation scenarios of the existing situation.

      In this study David Matsaberidze from Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, Georgia will attempt to investigate the remaining seeds of prospective conflict, as the current reality might contain some potential for the eruption of violence, as example the construction of the Sochi Olympic complex which irritates Georgians and Circassians as well as portion of Abkhazians. He will also analyze the North Caucasian new policy line, initiated and followed by the central Georgian authorities and Georgia’s recognition of the Russian Genocide of Circassians in the 19thcentury, which should become leverage against the Russian Federation in wider Caucasus region.

      As the author pointed out, all of these aspects make up the present security dilemma in the region. He thinks that it is interesting to see whether changes in the Abkhazian-Georgian and Abkhazian-Russian relations could be expected in the foreseeable future.
