Supporting Human Rights Action Plan Monitoring

30 March 2018 Supporting Human Rights Action Plan Monitoring

From March 27 to 30, Human Rights Action Plan Monitoring Week took place at the Government Administration, presenting the preliminary results of civil society’s monitoring of the Georgian government’s Human Rights Action Plan (2016-2017). The monitoring project is supported by USAID/PROLoG together with the Open Society Georgia Foundation (OSGF) to develop tools for monitoring and reporting in a systemic manner on the implementation of the Human Rights Strategy and Action Plan.

The partner NGOs monitored three general categories of issues: 1) criminal justice, right to fair trial, the Prosecutor’s Office, protection of human rights in penitentiary system, fight against torture and other forms of inhuman and degrading treatment; 2) freedom of expression and assembly, freedom of religion, and LGBTI rights; and 3) rights of a child, gender equality and women’s rights, and rights of persons with disabilities. The results of the monitoring were presented to stakeholders so they could discuss the findings of the report and share their views.

A specially developed web-page (http://hrm.org.ge/) was also presented during the meetings to provide interested individuals with the ability to monitor the implementation and progress of the Action Plan.

The partner organizations who conducted the monitoring - Georgian Democracy Institute (GDI), Institute for Democracy and State Development (IDSD), Women’s Initiatives Supportive Group (WISG), Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association (GYLA), Human Rights Education and Monitoring Center (EMC), Sapari, and Partnership for Human Rights (PHR) - will finalize the reports based on the outcomes of the meetings and other feedback. Within the project a unified monitoring methodology was also developed, which will serve as an important tool for others interested in monitoring similar action plans in the future.

PROLoG is actively engaged in strengthening the protection of human rights and continues to support varied events and activities to achieve this goal.

Since 2010, USAID/EWMI has worked with Georgia’s state institutions, civil society organizations, and law schools to strengthen the justice system to ensure due process, judicial independence, and the protection of human rights through wide-ranging activities. We also work to strengthen both legal education and the legal profession
