This article focuses on interethnic relations within Abkhazia, a republic that remains largely a multiethnic society where debates on the management of ethnic diversity are fundamental in discussions of its future. The author observes that growing numbers of non-Abkhaz have recently been perceiving similarities between the current Abkhaz approach and Georgian exclusivist ethno-national policy at the end of the 1980s. R. Clogg notices that if the current government has shown an inclination to integrate the non-Abkhaz communities, it still faces the challenge of a population increasingly unaccustomed to integrated multiethnic living.
