Prospect of NATO and EU Membership Positively Received by most Georgians

According to a new survey conducted by the Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC) Georgia, both NATO and EU membership are looked at rather favourably. Of the people interviewed, 41% support Georgia’s NATO integration, with 26% partially supporting it and 20% against it.  Meanwhile, 45% of respondents were in favor of joining the EU, 28% partial in their support, with only 14% against it. 

However, when it comes to joining the Eurasian Union, the numbers aren’t so high. Only 19% supported the idea, 24% partially supported it, and 38% were against it. 

The survey was conducted between September 23 and October 10, 2017, with a total of 2,379 respondents interviewed. The average margin of error is put at 2%.  

The Caucasus Barometer survey is conducted by CRRC Georgia as part of the grant of New York Carnegie Corporation.
