Displaced People in Georgia
An estimated 300,000 people were displaced as a result of Georgias wars against two separatist military campaigns, one in the Black Sea region of Abkhazia in the northwest, and the other in the northeast region of South Ossetia. The war over Abkhazian, between 1992 and 1994, led to the displacement of mainly ethnic Georgians.
