EWMI-PROLoG Supports Training in Human Rights for Supreme Court Judge Assistants

17 May 2017 Human rights expert Besarion Bokhashvili talks about the right to respect private and family life

EWMI/PROLoG supports the Supreme Court of Georgia to implement the changes brought about by the “Third Wave” of legislative reforms. One such change is the obligation of the Supreme Court to review lower court decisions based on their compliance with the standards of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the practices of the European Court of Human Rights. To assist the Supreme Court in fulfilling this obligation, in partnership with the EU4Justice Judiciary Support project and the High School of Justice, PROLoG is providing a series of human rights trainings to the Supreme Court’s judge assistants, analytical department and Human Rights Center. These trainings are similar to those PROLoG previously provided to the Tbilisi City Court judicial assistants.

The trainings consist of three thematic workshops. The first workshop was conducted on May 12-14, and two PROLOG experts, Besarion Bokhashvili and Ekaterine Lomtatidze, delivered sessions on human rights concepts, relevant ECHR admissibility criteria and standards, and important case law on the Right to Privacy and Right to Liberty and Security. Additional workshops will be conducted in May-July. There will be separate trainings for Criminal and Civil/Administrative law chamber judicial assistants, and the trainings will cover issues that are of the most concern to the Supreme Court’s practice. The program will improve the quality of judicial decisions by ensuring that the required human rights standards are applied in the Supreme Court’s decisions.
