Martina Maslíková is pursuing a combined bachelor’s degree in European studies and Political science at the Faculty of Social Studies at Masaryk University. Furthermore, during her studies, she had the opportunity to study and live in Baku, Azerbaijan, where she learnt more about the geopolitics of the southern Caucasus region.
Her research focuses on the Southern Caucasus, particularly Georgia’s path to the EU. Her passion for the area is based on the complexities of Georgia’s political landscape. She is specifically interested in discussions surrounding EU expansion and its transformative potential for Georgia and neighbouring nations. Her BA thesis looks at the impact of the ruling Georgian Dream Party on the country’s accession to the EU, in which she examines the multifaceted challenges and opportunities Georgia faces on its European path.
