Georgia’s European opportunity

Salome Zourabichvili, President of Georgia, examines prospects for upcoming elections and foreign relations.

Open event
28 February 2024 — 6:00PM TO 7:00PM
Chatham House and Online

Salomé Zourabichvili born in France to a family of Georgian emigres, was the first woman to be elected as president of Georgia in 2018. She returned to Georgia first as a French diplomat, then became Georgia’s Foreign Minister and now President.

At this event, we will hear directly from Georgia’s President on the challenges facing its democracy, prospects for its future in Europe, the impact of the war in Ukraine, and the changing political balance in the wider South Caucasus.

The following questions will be considered:

  • Is Georgia’s democracy faltering?

  • Will Parliamentary elections result in the first-ever coalition government, or the ruling party is likely to retain its majority?

  • How is Georgia affected by the influx of Russian migrants?

  • What is the state of Tbilisi’s relationship with Moscow?

This event is held in cooperation with Liberal International.

Due to high demand, in-person places will be selected by ballot. Please register interest and we will inform those who have been successful in securing a place by Friday 23 February. Those who register interest to join virtually will be confirmed immediately.
