Democratic Governance

Fundamental principles of good governance, human rights and rule of law shape UNDP’s programme for democratic governance. We help Georgia to create strong state systems and transparent institutions that respond to the needs of citizens.

Our Goals

International expertise and thorough understanding of local environment helps us bring people together, foster partnerships and promote participation, accountability and effectiveness at all levels. We work with a wide range of partners, including with the Government, Parliament, court system, civil society, academic institutions, international organizations and the media. Our goal is to assist in consolidating Georgia’s democracy, promote reforms, and ensure the protection of human rights and liberties. more

Human Rights for All

UNDP supports the implementation and monitoring of the National Human Rights Strategy and Action Plan of Georgia in the areas prioritized by the EU-Georgia agreements. This includes the protection of the rights of minorities and vulnerable groups, internal and external oversight of law enforcement, labour rights, protection of privacy, and freedom of expression and information.

Georgia achieved the status of electoral democracy in 2013 following a peaceful transfer of power as a result of parliamentary polls in 2012 and positive assessment of the presidential elections in 2013.
