Current situation in Georgia against the background of the adoption of the law “on foreign agents”

In early April 2024, opposition protests began in Georgia against the current government’s intentions to adopt the Law on Foreign Agents. The ruling Georgian Dream party already tried to pass this law last March. Then mass protests began in Tbilisi, accompanied by violent clashes with the police. Western capitals also condemned the authorities’ intentions to adopt the law. As a result, the initiative was withdrawn. In 2024, the leaders of the Georgian Dream party (especially Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze, who replaced the more moderate Irakli Garibashvili) decided to resume preparations for the adoption of the law. 

In this piece Ascolta analyzes domestic political developments in Georgia against the background of the adoption of the so-called law “on foreign agents” by the Parliament of the country, as well as possible scenarios of further developments ahead of the parliamentary and presidential elections.
