Training of Trainers for Judges on Sexual Harassment

11 August 2020 Training of Trainers for Judges on Sexual Harassment

On August 8-10, USAID/PROLoG, in cooperation with the High School of Justice (HSoJ), organized Training of Trainers (ToT) for the judges of common courts on enhancing justice through gender equality and eliminating sexual harassment. Adam Schmidt, Director of Democracy, Government and Social Development at USAID Georgia, and Giorgi Tkavadze, head of the independent board of HSoJ made opening remarks. The training was led by Patricia Noonan, international expert, and Mariam Gaiparshvili, local expert, who were involved in development of the course.

Four judges attended the training. Patricia Noonan made a presentation on international standards of anti-discrimination, sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace and public spaces. Mariam Gaiparashvili reviewed the Georgian anti-discrimination law and practice, including prohibition of discrimination under Georgian law. The experts provided a number of case scenarios giving the opportunity to the participants to be actively involved in discussions. On the third day of the training, which was conducted online, the international expert discussed teaching methods and strategies and provided practical exercises.

As a result of this ToT, the judge-trainers will be able to develop a course to train judges, Justice Listeners and court personnel on regulating and litigating sexual harassment in the workplace and in public spaces. USAID/PROLoG plans to conduct a similar training for the members of Georgian Bar Association (GBA) in September.
