Collection of Articles, 2006

Team of Editors:
Irma Alpenidze, Paata Papava, Zaza Shatirishvili

This publication represents the perceptions of European values and ideas in the contemporary Georgian intellectual context. The authors do not limit themselves by one separate scope and try to look at the whole field of European values and ideas, from culture and education to policy issues.

Modern European values have not appeared instantly on the empty ground. That’s why it is important to not only view the history of European values, but also to inve stigate the intellectual praxis connected with the origins and functioning of those ideas.

Today Georgia strives towards Europe and intends to become the member of European family. Europe , on its part, offers cooperation in the framework of the European Neibourhood Policy. This means that we face a serious goal – to give meanings to the contemporary offers and challenges that reflect the prospects of future.
