PHR Conducts Informational Meeting to Raise Awareness on Supporting Victims of Violence

20 June 2018 PHR lawyer Ana Tavkhelidze talking to participants about gender-based violence

On June 18, in the framework of the USAID/PROLoG-funded project “Unlock the Untapped Potential of Georgian Law to Respond to Gender-based Discrimination and Violence,” representatives of “Partnership for Human Rights” (PHR) conducted a seminar in Tbilisi for the members of “Coalition for Children and Youth” and representatives from day care centers. The meeting was attended by 14 participants, including social workers, teachers and psychologists.

The main topic of the seminar was “Day care centers’ role in supporting gender-based violence child-victims and survivors.” A PHR lawyer, Ana Tavkhelidze, talked about gender-based violence, domestic violence, protective measures, existing services, as well as legal regulations governing the reporting of gender-based violence. Ms. Tavkhelidze also discussed violence against children (VAC) and day care centers’ role in the process of identifying VAC. Participants were introduced to PHR’s important cases about cyber bullying and domestic violence.  

The meeting was interactive, and participants talked about the difficulties they encounter in identifying and reporting violence against women and children. They also noted the serious challenges of granting victim status to the child victims of domestic violence and about the low referral rate of educational institutions to the authorities.
