The processes of Europeanization and EU integration, as mechanisms for spreading EU norms and values, are of the utmost importance in contemporary Georgia, especially after the signing of the EU-Georgia Association Agreement on June 27, 2014. The Association Agreement forms the basis for the country's political development, access to the common European market and establihment of European values and standards, thus, it is essential to gain a proper understanding of the political, economic and cultural dimensions of Europeanization and to deepen academic discourse regarding the process. 

The conference was multidisciplinary, and covered the following fields: social and political sciences, economics, law, humanities, and education sciences.
