Abstract

This thesis is on the transformation of Turco-Georgian relations since the early 1990s. In recent years, these relations have been taken to a next level in light of the trans-national cooperation that resulted in the construction of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline. With a narrow focus on the Turco-Georgian border, this study attempts to understand the trajectory of the improving relations between the two countries through a reconceptualised understanding of the border. By emphasising both the horizontal and vertical dimensions of borders, this thesis tries to steer away from the zero-sum approaches and understand the nature of Turco-Georgian as a complex multiplicity.
