Democratization of Georgia is challenged, inter alia, due to declining public trust to democracy and state institutions. In this discourse, increasing and intensive activities of populist nationalist groups introduce additional threat to development of democratic processes in the country. As state institutions are inefficient contrary to the increasing influence of nationalist populist groups, their financial resources, undeclared objectives, informal internal and external support, lacks the transparency. Even though, up to this date, populist nationalist groups have not had decisive influence over the political agenda of Georgia, declining public trust to democracy in general, increases the chances of strengthening populist nationalist attitudes in the country.
