Georgia's Euro-Atlantic Integration: Prospects and Perils

Since the October 1 elections, Georgia's new government has drawn controversy mainly over its domestic policies. Meanwhile, the government has pledged to continue the efforts toward Euro-Atlantic integration, and hopes to move toward an Association Agreement with the EU at the Vilnius summit of the Eastern Partnership. But can the domestic developments and European integration be separated? What are Georgia's prospects at Vilnius? And how are Georgia's NATO aspirations developing?



Mrs. Eka Tkeshelashvili, President of the Georgian Institute for Strategic Studies. Until recently she was the Vice Prime-Minister, State Minister of Georgia for Reintegration. On this position Mrs. Tkeshelashvili was overseeing the implementation of state policy towards the occupied territories of Georgia and the national policy on minority integration.

Prior to her work at the government Mrs. Tkeshelashvili was a Deputy Chief of Party at IRIS Georgia leading the programs on the rule of law, legal aid and human rights. She also worked as a Field Officer in the International Committee of the Red Cross. Mrs. Tkeshelashvili has master’s degree in international human rights law from Notre Dame Law School (USA), certificate in human rights lawyering and human rights advocacy from Oxford University (UK), Diploma in Law from Tbilisi State University.
