TDI Presents Video on Racism and Ethnic Discrimination

05 June 2020 TDI Discussion and Presentation of Video

On June 4, Tolerance and Diversity Institute (TDI), under the USAID/PROLoG-funded project, “Images of Diversity: Promoting Tolerance and Non-Discrimination in Georgia,” presented a video on racism and ethnic discrimination. Giorgi Chkheidze, USAID/PROLoG Chief of Party made opening remarks. Guest speakers - TDI documentary video protagonist Taraka Srinatha Dunuwilan from Sri Lanka and Lasha Bakradze, Historian took part in the ensuing discussion, moderated by TDI Director Eka Chitanava.

The video covers the following points:

  • what is racism and race;
  • different definitions/interpretations by natural and social sciences;
  • history and impact of racism and xenophobia.

Although racism has been condemned by modern society, racial discrimination still exists today; and racist, xenophobic, and neo-fascist groups are active around the world, including Georgia. During the discussion, Taraka Dunuwilan talked about the challenges obtaining residence permits, as well as Georgian hospitality and his overall experience living and working in the country for several years. Lasha Bakradze talked about racism, stereotypes, theories that laid a solid foundation to racism—for example Voltaire’s views and ideas—, and examples of racial discrimination in Georgia and throughout the world.
