Georgia is a country with multiethnic, multicultural and multireligious population. Cultural and religious diversity was an ordinary reality in the country during all period of its history. The experience of intercultural and interreligious dialogue has a centuries-long tradition in Georgia. The dialogue which is a natural phenomenon in multicultural and multi-confessional country involved different forms and mechanisms; however, the process existed beyond the official policy, not being a result of policy-making. The process of globalization brought the new ethnic and religious minorities, who are mostly concentrated in the cities. Their number increases and decreases from time to time. Basing on the assumption that the knowledge is the beginning, our group aims to represent the picture of ethnic/religious diversity of Georgia, main cultural characteristics of the different groups as well as their interaction, transformation of the main markers of cultural identity, challenges faced by the ethnic minorities and the Georgian majority.
