Niko Nikoladze

Niko Nikoladze (1843 – 1928) was a Georgian writer, pro-Western enlightener, and public figure primarily known for his contributions to the development of Georgian liberal journalism and his involvement in various economic and social projects of that time.

Nikoladze joined the Second Group (meore dasi) and fought widely for a program, ranging from state-regulated capitalism to various forms of "association" and collectivism, and worked to introduce European learning and culture in Georgia. “Meore dasi” became the first Georgian political team to stress the importance of the urban and economic life of Georgia.
