What do Georgians think about:

  • diversity in Georgian society
  • rights of minorites and vulnerable groups
  • who is affected by discrimination, hate crime and hate speech?
  • redress mechanisms and do they work?

"The main reason people think diversity is positive is that diversity makes life more interesting or that it is valuable in and of itself. In contrast, the main reason people think that diversity is negative for Georgia is that it is a threat to “our culture and traditions.”

"When it comes to existing redress mechanisms, half of people are generally aware of the fact that they can turn to the police, the courts, and the Public Defender’s Office if they are the victim of hate crime or hate speech. Yet, a smaller share of people would actually turn to these organisations if they were a victim."
