Georgia

Georgia is a country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, it is bounded to the West by the Black Sea, to the North by Russia, to the South by Turkey and Armenia, and to the Southeast by Azerbaijan. The capital of Georgia is Tbilisi.

Georgia is a member of the Council of Europe and the GUAM Organization for Democracy and Economic Development. Moreover, in 2013, Georgia initialed the Association Agreement with European Union.

Over the last few years, Georgia’s score in the 2016 Freedom in the World Index improved significantly, witnessing peaceful handover of power to an opposition party.  However, nowadays, Georgia is regarded as a “Partly Free” country. Moreover, despite economic challenges, the Georgian civil society is quite active, according to the 2015 CSOs Sustainability Index, published by USAID. Correspondingly, the nongovernmental sector is strongly engaging both in urban and rural areas in debates, advocating for core issues for the sector and contributing to social and economic development through collaborations with local and central governmental agencies.
