The processes taking place in Georgian HE system are complex and so far not substantially studied. The empirical data and practical changes taking place in this system need their interpretations within relevant theoretical frameworks. The regionalization (Europeanization) and globalization (Americanization) processes influencing the national system since the collapse of the Soviet Union through shifts in governance forms and structural changes are featuring the new system. The ultimate characteristics of this system are hard to predict but the entire process clearly has its directions. With my thesis I tried to contribute to identifying these directions and to find relevant theoretical match in modern HE literature to the processes taking place in Georgian HE system today.
