Since 2008, the Government of Georgia has sought to turn over ownership of state-run IDP housing to its tenants. Claims about the positive relationship between private property and self-sufficiency underlie the program, which is supported by international humanitarian agencies and donors. But the effects of private property ownership in Georgia are complex. Through the lens of Georgia’s IDP housing programs, Caitlin will explore the role that property plays in Georgian development programs.
