Gender Equality in Georgia: Barriers and Recommendations. 2018
Jan 29, 2018
In line with its international commitments, Georgia has made significant strides in adopting legislative and policy reforms to foster gender equality and to combat violence against women. After a comprehensive review of Georgian law and policy, this study, Gender Equality in Georgia: Barriers and Recommendations, identifies remaining legislative and policy gaps related to gender equality across a range of fields: political participation, economic empowerment, violence against women, labour relations, health, education, peace and security, sports and culture, as well as the cross-thematic Gender Equality and Anti-Discrimination Laws.
The study was carried out by the Gender Equality Council of the Parliament of Georgia with support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Government of Sweden, under the UN Joint Programme for Gender Equality, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and East-West Management Institute, under the USAID-funded initiative Promoting Rule of Law in Georgia (PROLoG).
