Geocase’s Nikoloz Khatiashvili joins the Warsaw Security Forum Democracy Network – New Regional Pro-Democracy Initiative

Mr Nikoloz Khatiashvili a non-resident Foreign Policy Research Fellow at Geocase has joined The Warsaw Security Forum Democracy Network, initiated by the Casimir Pulaski Foundation. 

The Warsaw Security Forum Democracy Network will be a platform for Central and Eastern European civil society and expert organizations to discuss and develop joint projects.

Mr Khatiashvili attended the online meeting during which the twenty representatives of the civil society from Belarus, Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, and Ukraine discussed the project designed to amplify the voice of organizations fighting for the integrity of the democratic process.

The four priorities set before the Network are: to gather like-minded individuals involved in democracy-building and democracy-strengthening projects; to share and explore ongoing projects related to strengthening regional democratic resilience; to brainstorm and possibly contribute to joint collaborative projects with international organizations; to influence the Warsaw Security Forum’s 2022 agenda on democracy-related issues.

The WSF Democracy Network is designed to support Casimir Pulaski Foundation’s partners to reach out and inform a broader audience of policy-makers, opinion-shapers, scholars, and community leaders about the importance of upholding democratic principles in security policy – particularly in times of security crisis. The network has been established with the support of the National Endowment for Democracy (USA).
