The development of the Alternative Report on the Implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Georgia was facilitated and coordinated by the Coalition for Independent Living (CIL) with valuable input and contributions from its member and non-member (partner) organizations. CIL is a national cross-disability coalition of 26 non-governmental organizations working on the issues of persons with disabilities.
The principle for setting up the alternative report working group was to ensure the involvement of representatives from all groups of persons with disabilities, as well as the engagement of the non-governmental organizations that work on disability-related discrimination cases. The contributing organizations include both, Tbilisi-based and regional NGOs.
The meetings of the working group took place during January-July, 2017 and totally four meetings were organized. During the same period, additional consultation meetings were held with the visually impaired and deaf community, parents of disabled children, the women living in rural areas, organizations working on the issues of people with psychosocial needs and learning disabilities andthe organizations working in regions and rural areas.
Each contributor organization has a long history of working on the disability issues and/or discrimination cases on the grounds of disability. While gathering information for this report, they have applied different methods including research, focus-groups, interviews, existing litigation cases and/or information requested from the various government organizations.
The report covers the timeframe of 2014-2019, i.e. the period since the convention entered into force for Georgia.
