Georgia and the Caucasus at the Crossroads

1 May 2012 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Chatham House, London


Giorgi Bokeria, National Security Advisor to the President of Georgia; and Secretary of the National Security Council, Georgia



Georgia faces a complex regional environment. As international attention focuses on Iran and Syria, there have been concerns about the effect this may have on so-called 'frozen conflicts' in the Caucasus. Georgia continues to seek a NATO Membership Action Plan, as well as closer integration with the EU, while Vladimir Putin's pre-election rhetoric underlined Russia's continued opposition to the NATO presence in the former Soviet states. Giorgi Bokeria will offer his perspective on the challenges Georgia is facing in its neighbourhood.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
