A Conversation with the President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili

Georgia is Europe's gateway between the East and the West. It lies at the heart of a region rapidly changing—Russia, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia. An aspirant to EU and NATO, Georgia’s soldiers have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan as America’s allies. Its democracy has developed against the odds in a neighborhood where power is often exercised without popular consent. How will the strategic realignments underway in Eurasia affect Georgia? Is Georgia’s embrace of the West enduring, and what path links Georgia’s future to Europe and America? How can the US benefit from Georgia's further Western integration?

His Excellency the President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili will discuss these issues with the Honorable Jane Harman, Director, President, and CEO of the Wilson Center, and then take your questions, at the Wilson Center on Thursday, October 1 at 11:00am.
