Beyond the geopolitical power play, what are the prospects for Georgia's political and economic development? The speaker will discuss the challenges facing Georgia as the country seeks to rebuild and move forward following last August's war with Russia. Key issues to be discussed will include internal reform, regional relations, energy security and Georgia's role as a transit country, and the prospects for deepening cooperation and integration with the European Union in light of the launch of the Eastern Partnership.
