Submission to the UN Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on SOGI

This report is submitted by Women’s Initiatives Support Group (WISG), a non-governmental, non-profit-making organisation defending the human rights of lesbian, bisexual women, trans and intersex persons in Georgia. The report is based on materials collected and documented by WISG: evidence from victims of human rights violations, analysis of secondary sources from judicial and public administration bodies, interviews and focus groups conducted with LGBTQI community members, NGOs working on LGBTQI rights and related issues, annual and special reports of The Office of the Public Defender of Georgia (PDO) and other experts and relevant national experts, WISG’s 2018 discrimination study “From Prejudice to Equality,” WISG’s litigation reports of 2016, 2017, 2018 and other analytical reports and submissions of the organisation.[1]

The purpose of this report is to evaluate the situation in Georgia in terms of human rights at the national level for the upcoming visit of the Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The report aims to highlight those main problems, which emerge in the process of protecting human rights on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity. This report will assess the steps made by the Georgian government while implementing international obligations and will provide a documentation of achieved progress while accomplishing challenges in the nearest future.
