On October 25, the Human Rights Center (HRC), under the USAID/PROLoG-funded legal aid project “Promote access to justice for women, religious and ethnic minorities in the regions of Georgia,” presented its final report. The report focuses on the cases of gender based violence, discrimination on gender, ethnic and religious grounds, as well as on the lawsuits lodged to the Constitutional Court of Georgia, and appeals sent to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. The report also presents the challenges identified in the case proceedings on legislative and procedural level that hinders effective protection of the rights of victims of violence and discrimination. The report also contains recommendations to the state institutions.  Representatives of the Human Rights Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia (MIA) and Human Rights Defense Unit of the Chief Prosecutor’s Office presented their position regarding the problems highlighted in the report.
