Seeking Ways for Peace
TBILISI. 21 February 2014. Georgian and South Ossetian non-governmental organizations presented the results of the survey “Georgian-Ossetian Society Seeking Ways for Peace”.
The survey reached out for the internally displaced people and residents of the areas adjacent to the Administrative Boundary Line, and examined their attitudes to the conflict, peace-building, security and stability. Up to 300 people have been questioned in total.
Human safety, timely information, economic and social improvements in the areas affected by conflict, increased engagement of the displaced and women in peace-building – those are some major findings and recommendations based on the survey results.
The research has been implemented by the Georgian non-governmental organization “Union of Wives of Service-Disabled Veterans and Lost Warriors of Georgia” and its South Ossetian counterpart, Women’s Association “For Democracy and Human Rights in South Ossetia”.
The survey was presented at the conference today that ran simultaneously in Tbilisi and Tskhinvali through video conferencing in Skype.
Representatives of the Georgian Government, civil society and international organizations attended the event.
The research initiative is part of the joint programme of the European Union and the UNDP – Confidence Building Early Response Mechanism (COBERM).
