This meeting is the first attempt to create a tradition of Oliver Wardrop Discussions to bring together British and Georgian politicians and young leaders and foster dialogue and cooperation between the countries and will be held annually.
The “Europe in a suitcase” is the continuation of an international project series which up to 2013 had been implemented by the European Academy Berlin with the support of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and other foundations. The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom supports and developed the project in South Caucasus and aims to bring closer European and Georgian young leaders, representatives of Academia, young politicians and members of civil society.
