From roses to bullets: the rise and decline of post-Soviet colour revolutions
Ó Beacháin, Donnacha; Polese, Abel
The chapter explores the reasons for the colour revolutions’ successes and failures in the post-Soviet space. The article starts with an overview on the colour movement from the first stirrings to the present day. We then propose criteria that will be applied to our analysis, constructed on five variables. The factual analysis of individual countries that follows is built around these five variables.
