Since the August 2008 war, actors on all sides of the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict have struggled to adjust to the new realities on the ground. The results of the October parliamentary elections in Georgia have brought a change of government, and there are relatively new senior figures on both sides of the de facto border, but 2013 is also likely to be marked by tensions between the Georgian President and his cabinet. This event will analyse the recent political developments in Tbilisi and Sukhum/i and prospects for conflict resolution.
Attendance is by invitation only.
