Virtual Round Table Discussion: “How to Define Georgian National Interests Amid Ukraine Crisis?”

On February 8, the Georgian Institute of Politics (GIP) held a virtual round table discussion titled “How to Define Georgian National Interests Amid Ukraine Crisis?”.

Participants of the roundtable discussion formed the discussion around the following topics:

  • What are the significant challenges that the crisis around Ukraine poses to Georgia?
  • How could we explain official Tbilisi’s low-key foreign policy amid increasing tensions in the region, and how could it affect its foreign relations?
  • Do the main political actors in the country perceive Georgian national interests in the same manner?

The roundtable discussion was moderated by Levan Tsutskiridze, Executive Director of the Eastern European Centre for Multiparty Democracy (EECMD).
