This summer Batumi Shota Rustaveli State University hosted an intensive summer school, which coincided with two side, but not less important events – the “Georgia’s European Way” Converence and annual meeting of the DESCnet consortium. Both came at a very pivotal moment of unprecedented challenges for the destini of mutual coexistence of people and nations. The focus on Europeanisation, with a special empasis on the Caucasus, is a concept that today conveys both unprecedented challenges and immense opportunities. These developments are relevant not only for the Caucasus region, but for the entire continent, and beyond. The Caucasus region is facing numerous challenges in terms of stability, security and regional consolidation that the Western European countries have faced in the early post-war period, and that are re-emerging, given today’s circumstances.
