Working Paper #45

After the August 2008 war various mass media both in Georgia and abroad reported widely on the oppression of Ossetians and their eviction from settlements, giving rise to much political speculation.
The circulation of various contradictory accounts prompted ECMI to study this issue and conduct research that would provide answers to pressing questions about the influence of the August 2008 war on Georgian-Ossetian relations, how the demographic balance has changed in Ossetian-populated regions of Georgia, what demographic and migratory patterns prevail in the current political circumstances and how the August 2008 war affected the conditions of Ossetians in Georgia.
