This handbook explains in readily comprehensible language what the new Association Agreement between the European Union and Georgia means in legal, political and economic terms. This treaty is a milestone in the history of Georgia's place in Europe, and definitively marks the country's post-Soviet independence. It is also a new model treaty for the EU's relations with its closest neighbours.
