Is Georgia Going Back to the Bandwagoning Strategy towards Russia?

by Irakli Javakhishvili

 445 total views

Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Georgia attained autonomy but was soon embroiled in civil war. Additionally, two territories that are currently seized by Russian military forces, Abkhazia and so-called South Ossetia, were lost. The independence obtained by means of struggle was seriously threatened by the nation’s challenging socio economic situation, elite corruption, and high crime rate in the country.



Our mission is to bridge the gap between Hungarian and European experts and eliminate linguistic obstacles by sharing our knowledge, skills, and extensive network.


Our professional efforts are based on two pillars:

  • create an independent, nonpartisan Hungarian foreign policy forum that will help Hungarian researchers to gain a foothold on the international ground of security and defense policy.
  • foster a constructive dialogue and exchange of ideas, respectively partnership with other foreign policy organizations abroad.

Our scientific activities include book and study reviews, as well as the release of excerpts in English language.  We are determined to nurture talent.


The Dialogue for Regional Security and Science is an international networking project founded and maintained by the Külügyi Műhely Alapítvány. We operate in accordance with the guidelines, laid down by the founder. Külügyi Műhely Alapítvány (hereinafter: the Foundation) was established in Budapest in 2018. Since then, it has emerged as a leading actor in the Hungarian academic life.


The Foundation's scientific online journal is issued twice a year. The publication is intended to provide in-depth analysis of international events and analysis of Hungary's external relations. Its aim is to provide academics, researchers, professionals, along with university students (including postgraduate and doctoral students) a forum to present and publish their scientific findings.
