This keynote address by Speaker David Usupashvili, Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia, on Friday June 21st 2013, 2.00pm, in the Old Library, Pembroke College Cambridge, is the opening event at the BGS inaugural Georgian day at Pembroke. Joining Mr Usupashvili for a panel discussion will be Sir Tony Brenton (UK Ambassador to Russia 2004-2008), Judith Gough (UK Ambassador to Georgia 2010 – 2013), David Howarth (MP for Cambridge 2005-2010) and Roy Reeve (former head of OSCE mission in Tbilisi 2004 – 2007). The event will be chaired by Sir Richard Dearlove, Master of Pembroke College Cambridge.
This promises to be a fascinating occasion just 4 months before the next Georgian Presidential election and 8 months since the election of the Georgian Dream coalition, and the unpredicted democratic change in Georgian politics.
