Post-Pandemic World Order-Place of Georgia in Transformative International System

Abstract
The purpose of the report is a simulated analysis of the situation which will be formed after the economic and political crises caused by COVID19. Many scenarios of organization of the international system of the post-pandemic era has been formulated. Our goal is to predict one of these scenarios in the post –pandemic world for states with great military potentials, the establishment of military-strategic and political control over countries rich in natural resources and raw materials and also those countries that have a geographic location favorable for transit will gain great importance. One of such regions are the southern Caucasus and Georgia, which has a nodal geographic position. The likely restructuring of the world system caused by theoretical and paradigmatic revisionism of world politics will force Georgia to rethink its place in the system of geopolitical relations in the region to ensure national security and stable democratic development. A sociological analysis of modern Georgian society shows a polarized worldviews of generations. A considerable part of the older generation in the cultural sphere is oriented towards traditionally collective values, while in the economic sphere, as a society of collective traditional values and a carrier of social solidarity, it expresses more active support for democratic ideas. As for young people, they are more supportive of globalization, gender equality, the environment and other democratic and liberal- individualistic values. Based on a two-paradigmatic value fragmentation, it is not so difficult to transform Georgia into a two party system, where the youth of society is located on one side of the horizontal political spectrum, which supports the transplantation of a liberal-individualistic and pro-Western value system into Georgian reality and the opposite side will be occupied by that segment of society, which mainly consists of people of the older generation with communist value worldview, whose ideological and value orientations basically coincide with the traditionally conservative, Orthodox values of the ruling power and the population of Russia and in foreign policy will focus on the Russian world. It would be beneficial for the country to operate a bipartisan political system based on liberal and conservative ideologies. It is precisely such a political system operating on the basis of such geopolitical and ideological bipolarism that would be able to create such an order in the geopolitical structure of the region, when principle of mutual restraint of contradicting actors ensure the functioning of the security system based on a balanced foreign policy. And inside the country, this system would be transformed into a political system based on the brink of mutual balancing competence of elites with polarized ideological and world outlooks, standing on different political positions and having equal social bases. A system of balances activated as a result of two-stage differentiation would significantly deepen the democracy of the political system.
