USAID/PROLoG Supports HSoJ to Organize the First Pilot Training for Civil and Administrative Judges in Human Rights

11 September 2018 Training in Foundations of Human Rights for Judges in Borjomi

On September 8-9, the High School of Justice (HSoJ) in cooperation with USAID/PROLoG, organized the first pilot training on Foundations of Human Rights for Civil and Administrative Judges. The training was attended by 16 judges from Tbilisi and Kutaisi Appellate Courts, Tbilisi and Rustavi City Courts, as well as Mtskheta District Court and the Sokhumi/Gagra-Gudauta District Court. The two-day training was conducted by judge-trainers from Tbilisi Appellate Court, Tamar Alania and Giorgi Tkavadze, who worked with USAID/PROLoG-hired human rights experts Levan Meskhoradze and Konstantine Korkelia during Summer 2018 to develop course content and materials. The purpose of the course is to improve the basic understanding of Georgian judges in human rights matters.  The Course is designed as an introduction to basic concepts and standards of human rights relevant for civil and administrative adjudication, covering issues like Right to Privacy and Family Life, Freedom of Expression, Right to a Fair Trial, Property Rights and Prohibition of Discrimination. In 2016, a similar course was developed with USAID/PROLoG’s support for criminal law judges. Both courses are included in the in-service training program for sitting judges and court personnel and fully administered by the HSoJ.
