Abstract

EU has long been thought and considered as a strong democracy promoter in its neighbourhood. Even so, it still has repeatedly failed to maintain peace and tranquility, not only in the Southern neighbourhood, but also in the Eastern one, where Georgia is located. Even though the (unresolved) conflicts of South Ossetia and Abkhazia tore down the country, leaving painful consequences behind, Georgia has succeeded into being one of the few EU neighbour countries that has attained a meaningful level of democratic development. This article discusses some highlights of the EU-Georgian relations and examines EU’s role as a transformative power in the country.
