The rallying around the flag effect in Georgia

In times of crisis, support for governments often rises in what is known as a rallying around the flag effect. The COVID-19 crisis in Georgia has been no exception.

Data from around the world has shown rallying around the flag effects in many countries during the pandemic, with a few exceptions. Georgia has followed this broader pattern, with performance ratings tripling for many actors and institutions between November/December 2019 and May 2020.

Support for democracy increased in Georgia during COVID-19, but what does that mean?

The COVID-19 outbreak generated discussion about whether support for democracy would decline during and after the crisis. While reported support increased, this did not necessarily match support for democratic means of governance.

Data from the CRRC’s COVID-19 monitor shows that more people in Georgia reported support for democracy compared to the pre-crisis period. However, as before the crisis, support for democracy does not seem to be grounded in the values commonly associated with democratic governance.

There is a gap between support for democracy and liberal values in Georgia

Public opinion polls suggest support for democracy is on the decline in Georgia, but does support for democracy correlate to support for liberal values? 

An increasing number of Georgians view their country as ‘a democracy with major problems’, with CRRC’s Caucasus Barometer survey showing the share of people reporting this belief to have increased from 27% in 2011 to 48% in 2019

In parallel to this growing scepticism towards the country’s democratic situation, surveys show a decline in the proportion of the population believing that democracy is preferable to any other kind of government, falling from 65% in 2011 to 49% in 2019

ანალიზი | საეკლესიო სკანდალები ზიანს აყენებს საქართველოს მართლმადიდებელი ეკლესიის მიმართ ნდობას

ბოლო წლების განმავლობაში საქართველოს მართლმადიდებელი ეკლესია არაერთ სკანდალში გაეხვა. იქონია თუ არა ამ სკანდალებმა გავლენა მოსახლეობის ნდობაზე ეკლესიის მიმართ?

2017 წელს ერთერთ მღვდელს ბრალი წაუყენეს და გაასამართლეს საქართველოს კათალიკოს პატრიარქ ილია მეორის მდივნის მკვლელობის მცდელობისთვის. ასევე, იყო გახმაურებული შემთხვევები, რომლებიც სახელმწიფოს მიერ ეკლესიისთვის მიწების სიმბოლურ ფასად გადაცემას შეეხებოდა...

Analysis | Georgia has a vaccine misinformation problem

Many experts believe that to fully remove the restrictions which have emerged because of the COVID-19 crisis, a vaccine is needed.
