“Third Sector” of South Ossetia: parameters of potential modernization

05 March 2015

Probably, already in March a basic agreement “On Alliance and Integration” between Russia and South Ossetia will be signed. In any case, government of the Russian Federation has already approved the final draft. As in case of Abkhazia, main attention of mass media will be guaranteed to focus on the block of security and defense, the second place will be given to issues of economy, but a topic of modernization of South Ossetia’s social and political space, will remain “off-screen”, writes political scientist and research fellow at the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Karavayev for the information website of political commentaries “Politcom.
