USAID/PROLoG supports publication of ‘The Judiciary of the First Republic’

29 July 2019 Anna Dolidze talks about her research findings to Mr. Shavliashvili, Supreme Court Judge

On July 8, ‘The Judiciary of the First Republic’ was presented to the public at the Supreme Court of Georgia. Dr. Anna Dolidze, an Associate Professor at International Black Sea University (IBSU) and at IBSU is the author of the USAID/PROLoG-supported monograph. She is also a member of High Council of Justice, appointed to this position by the former President of Georgia, Giorgi Margvelashvili. The monograph covers the progress in the judiciary achieved by the First Republic of Georgia, which existed from 1918-1921. Though short-lived, the first government engaged in numerous reforms, including the reform of the judicial system. The author analyzes the reforms carried out by the first government from the perspective of western legal culture and democratic values. The manuscript was developed in close cooperation with many important stakeholders, including The Chief Justice of Georgia. The research conducted by Professor Dolidze and her team showed that some elements taken from the American judicial system in modern times were successfully operated during the First Republic. The first Georgian Parliament adopted more than 100 laws, including jury trials.

The monograph was presented by the acting Chief Justice, Ms. Mzia Todua. Copies of the published monograph will be distributed by PROLoG in July.
