PHR Meets with Representatives of Georgian Universities

05 April 2021 PHR Meets with Representatives of Georgian Universities

On April 2, Partnership for Human Rights (PHR), under the USAID/PROLoG-funded Strengthening Child Access to Justice in Georgia project, organized an informational meeting with representatives of various Georgian Universities – the University of Georgia, Free University, Ilia University, Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani University and Akaki Tsereteli State University – on best practices and ethical considerations in the representation of children.

Sopiko Menabdishvili and Ana Tavkhelidze (PHR) made a brief presentation of the document “Best Practices and Ethical Considerations in the Representation of Children: the Perspective from U.S. Law and Practice,” prepared by Kara Finck, USAID/PROLoG expert. During the discussion, participants talked about ethical representation of children, the challenges in defining and determining the best interests of a child, professional ethics and the responsibilities/role of a judge in cases where children are involved in judicial proceedings. The participants were actively involved in the discussion and expressed their willingness to organize another meeting/training on issues concerning children.
