Title Abkhazia and the Preparations for the Sochi Games : Possibilities and Conditions
Author(s) Tchantouria, Revaz
Date 2013
Editor(s) Petersson, Bo; Vamling, Karina
English abstract
The chapter explores the political and juridical aspects of Abkhazia’s participation in the preparations of the Winter Games. How may state actors and international organisations (such as the International Olympic Committee and the International Civil Aviation Organisation) be engaged in the Games, which partly involves Abkhaz territory, without, at the same time, violating international laws and regulations? It discusses two central problems: (1) the exploitation of Abkhazia’s natural resources, and (2) the development of infrastructure in Abkhazia for use in the Olympic Games.
