This study, conducted by researchers at Sciences Po in Paris, CEPS and the New Economic School of Georgia, assesses the present state of the EU-Georgia discussions on a free trade agreement and finds there is an urgent need for the European Commission to reshape its approach. To this end, the authors put forward concrete proposals that should be set in motion well before the autumn 2011 Eastern Partnership Summit.
