For nearly two decades, Georgia has been struggling to develop its democratic political party system. What are its future prospects as an independent nation? How can the infrastructure be improved so Georgia can thrive as a vibrant democracy?

            This book, the result of a multinational research effort, surveys emerging Georgian political parties and provides a comprehensive analysis of the current situation and its historical background, along with practical recommendations for improvements. It offers invaluable insight into Georgian politics, as Georgian politicians were actively involved in the creation of the book.
