International Approaches to Governing Ethnic Diversity

S. Neil MacFarlane

Oxford University Press

A wide range of international actors (multilateral, state and non-state) have been involved in the democratic transition in Georgia. This chapter focuses on the involvement of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the United Nations in the various democratic transitions in Georgia, as well as in the aftermath of the 1992–3 war with Abkhazia. This provides a basis for comparing how different international actors use different assumptions and decide on different solutions in the face of the same set of circumstances. In addition, international responses to the situation in Georgia have been facilitated, constrained and undermined by the role of Russia and the US as key actors in the international institutions in question, and the chapter discusses the influence of these factors on the strategies used by the OSCE and the UN.
