The Role of Georgia’s Media — and Western Aid — in the Rose Revolution

By David Anable

A paper by David Anable, fall 2005 fellow, examines the role of the Georgian media in the country’s Rose Revolution and the impact that Western media development aid played in enabling this to occur. It also looks at what has happened to the country’s media since the revolution, at the U.S. policies underlying the aid programs, and at what lessons have been learned.
