Minority Rights in Georgia
TBILISI. 15 June 2013 – The rights of national, religious and sexual minorities in Georgia were in focus of a conference organised by UNDP and the Parliament of Georgia.
The event brought together representatives of the Georgian government, Parliament, civil society and the media.
Jamie McGoldrick, Head of UNDP in Georgia, and Manana Kobakhidze, Vice Speaker of the Parliament of Georgia, addressed the participants at the opening session.
"We strongly believe that the protection of minorities – national, religious or sexual, and the promotion of tolerance and equality – are the cornerstones of democracy," said Jamie McGoldrick.
This was followed by a presentation of Ucha Nanuashvili, the Public Defender of Georgia, and panel discussions moderated by Gogi Gvakharia, Radio Liberty, and Nino Danelia, Georgian Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA).
