EWMI/PROLoG Supports Public Lectures on Human Rights Issues at Free University

14 December 2017 Guram Imnadze (EMC) talking about the legislative bill

On November 29, under the framework of its USAID-funded EWMI/PROLoG grant, the National Institute for Human Rights at Free University Tbilisi conducted its second public lecture on human rights issues. The topic of the lecture was the challenges of Georgia’s drug policies and a draft legislative bill to reform those policies. The speakers at the public lecture were representatives of the members of the “Georgian National Drug Policy Platform,” the initiator of the legislative bill: Guram Imnadze (Human Rights Education and Monitoring Center), David Subeliani (White Noise Movement), and David Otiashvili (Alternative Georgia).  

The speakers reviewed the major highlights of the draft bill, the changes it proposes to introduce in the criminal law, as well as the public health dimensions of the drug problem. David Subeliani talked about the process of initiating the bill and the negotiations with major decision makers at Parliament and in the government, and David Otiashvili overviewed the trends of drug use in Georgia, the public health problems that the existing legislation is fueling, and the solutions this draft bill proposes. The public lecture was attended by students, who actively engaged in discussions with the speakers.
