On October 31, 2020, important parliamentary elections will take place in Georgia. Our online talk and invited speakers will address such issues as:What should we expect as an outcome of these elections? How might the recent institutional changes of the electoral framework influence the voting results? How has the global pandemic impacted the campaign strategies?
