Fighting Discrimination, Hate Crime and Hate Speech in Georgia
The co-operation project “Fight against discrimination, hate crime and hate speech in Georgia” aims to provide expertise, build competences, advocate and raise awareness among policy makers, legal professionals, law enforcement agencies and civil society organisations to enable them to:
- fully align national legislation and bylaws on anti-discrimination, hate crimes, and hate speech as well as relevant monitoring mechanisms to the Council of Europe standards;
- ensure their effective implementation;
- increase public appreciation for the laws’ contribution towards democracy, human rights, peace and prosperity in the Georgian society.
The project is being implemented by the Council of Europe’s Anti-Discrimination Department (DG2) and the Human Rights policy and Co-operation Department (DG1) together with the Council of Europe Office in Georgia.
