In light of Georgia’s ratification of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against women and Domestic Violence (The Istanbul Convention), the EU is supporting the Government of Georgia in implementing its formal commitments undertaken under the Istanbul Convention.
This project assists Georgia’s executive, legislative and judicial authorities in advancing gender mainstreaming into public administration. It provides enduring, pertinent and vigorous technical assistance to the Inter-Agency Commission on Gender Equality, Violence against Women and Domestic Violence in Georgia to advance gender sensitivities in national policies, human resources’ management in public administration and dialogue between main policy makers and civil society actors, alongside strengthening respective institutional capacities of main stakeholders.
This is done through increased capacities and knowledge of public servants to mainstream gender into policy making at national and local levels, carrying out gender analysis of national and local budgetary processes, advancing the dialogue and advocacy of gender advocates, civil society organisations and academia with the Georgia’s Inter-Agency Commission on Gender Equality in line with Georgia’s international and domestic Human Rights legal framework.
