Abstract

The present study is a thorough examination of the domestic political situation in the Republic of Abkhazia during the last two-three years. The author describes and analyses the current political landscape of this republic, characterises the newly formed political elite and the developments and tendencies in the political and economic life of the country after the declaration of independence, discusses the details of the last presidential elections, and a number of related issues. The phenomenon of unrecognised states itself merits an examination, as any of them can provide a paradigm of how an independent state may be built outside of the international community, and how a political system may be established in a chaotic post-conflict environment. The building of an unrecognised state is not completed until the moment of its international recognition, which may come at any time or may not come at all.
