New Publication  by Reformatics Team

Reformatics is pleased to share a new publication “Deepening EU-Georgia Relations – What, why and how,” produced jointly by the team of Reformatics and the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels. This book seeks to explain the contents of a long and complex treaty, the Association Agreement including the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), between Georgia and the European Union. It helps readers – officials, scholars, business or civil society representatives - understand what each chapter of the Agreement means, in terms of both the nature of commitments that the parties have assumed, and the prospects for their implementation.

As political and economic objectives of the Agreement, including the DCFTA, are fundamental for the future development of Georgia, it is important to fully comprehend and evaluate benefits as well as challenges and costs related with the implementation of the Agreement.

The authors of the book are grateful to the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) for its support to the project.

The book is co-edited by Michael Emerson, Associate Senior Research Fellow at CEPS, and Tamara Kovziridze, Partner and Senior Director of Reformatics. It is available for purchase at and
