Chapter Summary

The process of state building in the South Caucasus has been much slower than expected by the Western states. The kind of democracy that is taking shape in the Caucasus raises questions as to the expectations placed upon a democracy. The Council of Europe chose to admit the states in the South Caucasus in 1999 and 2001 (Georgia was admitted on 27 April 1999, followed by Armenia and Azerbaijan on 25 January 2001), with the requirements that they had to improve their human rights record and their democratic reforms in order to meet the standards of democracy expected of member states of the Council of Europe. Many foreign NGO's are active in the South Caucasus. They oft en work together with local NGOs in rehabilitation and confidence building projects, political trainings, empowerment and projects that help in strengthening the state through respect for human rights.
