Located in the Caucasus region of Eurasia, Georgia borders Russia, Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan. After a civil war and authoritarian period following the fall of the USSR, the popular Rose Revolution of 2003 led to reforms, though continued use of violent measures against peaceful protestors and accusations of election fraud remain. The most pressing human rights issues concern conflict over the two de facto independent regions, Abkhazia and North Ossetia, with displacement from the most recent round of fighting leaving tens of thousands homeless and without access to key government services.
