Georgia—Advancing Reforms in the Justice Sector

Client: European Union

Duration: 2023-2026

Region: Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Country: Georgia

Solutions: Governance

As Georgia aspires to European Union (EU) membership, strengthening the rule of law and reforming the justice sector is important. Over the past few years, Georgia has made progress with judicial reforms, constitutional amendments, anti-discrimination laws, and measures against organized crime and the EU continues to support the country to prioritize human rights.

The Advancing Reforms in the Justice Sector in Georgia project continues initiatives that support judicial reform and fosters security, equality, and democratic participation by improving human rights protection and criminal justice, reducing violence against women, and boosting civil society engagement. The project also improves investigation and prosecution quality, enhances the response to crimes against vulnerable groups, and advances restorative justice initiatives.
