Abstract

This article studies collective action and political mobilisation of Georgian internally displaced persons (IDPs). It focuses on IDPs’ responses to a controversial housing policy implemented as of 2010 by the Georgian government, which mandated resettlement of IDPs from collective centres to private accommodations. Building on relative deprivation theories, the article pinpoints and analyses four types of responses shown by IDPs in the aftermath of resettlement. Finally, it provides an assessment of the obstacles faced by IDPs’ in their collective and political action, and recommendations for policy developments. This exploratory study is based on qualitative analysis of in-depth interviews conducted in Tbilisi among IDPs from Abkhazia.
