"Status of Autonomous Regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia within Georgia (1917-1988). Collection of Political-Legal Acts". In English, Tbilisi, 2005, 246 p.


Introduction


The collection is a continuation of previous editions within the frame of research of regional conflicts in Georgia: 1. "Regional conflicts in Georgia - the Autonomous Oblast of South Ossetia, the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia (1989-2001). Political-legal Acts", in Georgian-Russian Languages. Tb. 2002; 2. "Regional conflicts in Georgia the Autonomous Oblast of South Ossetia, the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia (1989-2002). Political-legal Acts", in English. Tb. 2003; 3. Status of autonomous regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia within Georgia (1917-1988). Collection of political-legal acts, in Georgian and Russian. Tb. 2004.

The collection, electronic version of which is already available in Internet, consists of 199 major political-legal documents with regard of Abkhazia and South Ossetia adopted in 1917-1988, namely:

1. the Statutes and Constitutions of the Autonomous Regions;

2. interstate, state and republican agreements with regard of status of the autonomous regions;

3. the acts adopted by the organs of state authority of the autonomous regions, Georgia, North Caucasus Unions, Trans-Caucasus Soviet Federative Socialist Republic and of the USSR with regard of alteration of the status of these regions;

4. the Constitutions and laws of Georgia and of the USSR concerning the evolution of the status of autonomous regions;

5. other important documents.

Many of the documents are given in a condensed version, but the positions (chapters, articles, paragraphs) reflecting the purpose of the collection and the spirit of documents are selected very carefully.

The collection has no claim to perfection but likewise of other works on the problems of conflicts, it is designed for the stakeholders and may serve as a guide for better orientation in the conflict environment. The collection has the following objectives: to provide the readers with political- legal information of pre-conflict period in Georgia; to document the political-legal relations that later become the breeding source of political decentralization, opposition and military confrontation in these two regions. This collection, together with the previous two editions is an attempt to realize the problem as one whole, in depth, and give a comprehensive assistance to the sides involved in the conflict, as well as other interested groups in making proper decisions on the way of the just settlement of the problem.
