USAID/PROLoG-funded GDI Presents Report on “Litigation for Equality” Activities

13 December 2018 USAID/PROLoG-funded GDI Presents Report on “Litigation for Equality” Activities

On December 12, non-governmental organization Georgian Democracy Initiative (GDI) held a presentation of the final report prepared under the framework of its USAID/PROLoG-funded legal aid project "Litigation for Equality." The report analyzes the legal status of women from religious and ethnic minorities in Georgia and overviews activities carried out within the framework of the project. The report highlights the legal aid activities carried out by GDI’s lawyers and describes the strategic litigation cases they successfully litigated during the project. Representatives of non-state and state institutions, including the head of the Ministry of Internal Affair’s Human Rights Department and representatives of the Prosecutor’s Office, attended the meeting and participated in the discussion. GDI also involved their regionally-based intern-activists in the discussion to highlight the importance of having representatives of the local population participate in projects focused on supporting people living in regions. The intern-activists from Samtskhe-Javakheti and Adjara shared their experience and expressed gratitude to GDI and USAID/PROLoG for the support to their communities and the knowledge and experience they gained related to human rights as a result of the project.
