EWMI/PROLoG Supports Annual University Human Rights Law Week

14 December 2017 Annual University Human Rights Law Week

From December 4-11, under the framework of its USAID-funded EWMI/PROLoG grant, Free University Tbilisi and six other leading Georgian law schools organized Human Rights Law Week.  Human Rights Law Week is an annual event celebrating December 10 as Human Right Day and discussing domestic and international human rights issues relevant to the legal community in Georgia. The main goal of Human Rights Law Week is to raise awareness of human rights issues among university students and other young Georgians, as well as instigate more active academic discussion on these topics.

During the week, the participating schools delivered a series of lectures and public discussions on different human rights topics, including sessions dedicated to the 2017 constitutional reform in Georgia, the presentation of research on the prohibition of entrapment under the European Convention on Human Rights, and a shadow report submitted to the United Nation’s Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Professor Bridget Arimond, from PROLoG partner Northwestern University (USA), participated in several discussions focusing on the legislative regulation of sexual harassment and the role of university law clinics in the protection of human rights. Human Rights Law Week also included a presentation of Anna Dolidze’s Academic Writing Manual and many more interesting events.

The Human Rights Law Week closing ceremony took place at the Supreme Court of Georgia, where an award was given to the human rights activist selected by the universities as having made a special contribution to protecting human rights during 2017. The recipient was Ana Natsvlishvili, former chairman of the Georgian Young Lawyers Association.
