Human rights, legal protection and public attitudes towards the LGBTQI community in Georgia
05 May 2022
A series of research was conducted by Georgia’s Public Defender’s Office and the non-governmental organization ‘Women Initiatives’ Support Group’ (WISG) under the UN Joint Programme for Gender Equality, a Sweden-funded initiative implemented by UN Women, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
The research reviews international standards and Georgia’s commitments to protecting the rights of the LGBTQI community, analyses the legal environment and widespread practices in this area, and examines public attitudes toward LGBTQI people in Georgia. The research also includes recommendations for specific state agencies.
