ECMI Working Paper #22

Wheatley, Jonathan. Obstacles Impeding the Regional Integration of the
Javakheti Region of Georgia. September 2004, 41 pp., appendix.

This working paper is a consolidated and condensed analysis of a longer
field report originally carried out as part of ECMI's action-oriented
project "Defusing interethnic tension and promoting regional integration
- the Javakheti Region of the Republic of Georgia". Both the original
field report, and this resulting analysis aim to provide an insightful
overview of the current social, economic and political situation in two
rayons (districts) of Georgia; Akhalkalaki rayon and Ninostminda rayon;
which together combine to form a geographical area better known as the
Javakheti Region in southern Georgia. By identifying and providing
information about the current problems impeding the regional integration
of Javakheti, this working paper will act as a guide for defining
priorities and ensuring more informed intervention in the area.
