A Truth Commission for Georgia
On December 5, 2012, TA Joachim Herz Fellow Anna Dolidze and Carnegie Endowment Senior Associate Thomas de Waal, published a piece on Georgia's future in the wake of recent parliamentary elections. The full article can be found on the Carnegie Endowment website.
"On October 1, the Georgian Dream coalition won a decisive and widely unanticipated victory in Georgia’s parliamentary election. What might be called a historic “democratic moment” saw a peaceful handover of power through the ballot box to a new prime minister, Bidzina Ivanishvili. However, controversy has followed the election, particularly as a result of a series of arrests of officials associated with the previous governing party."
