Human Rights Research Center (HRRC)

Tbilisi, Georgia
Joined September 2021

The HRRC is based in Tbilisi, Georgia. As its mission, the organization is focused on promoting youth participation in political life through non-formal education.

Presence in: Georgia
Focus: Education, Other, Right to Information

Despite significant progress, from year to year, the Office of the Public Defender of Georgia in its reports speaks of serious problems in terms of human rights protection. At the same time, public awareness of human rights issues is still low at the national level. To respond to this problem (and not only that) in 2015, we decided to form an initiative group. In February 2018 initiative group became the legal entity. As its mission, our organization is oriented on giving youth practical experience and knowledge along with theoretical ones, to facilitate in turning those young people into active and successful members of society, through non-formal education. In our country, everything is accumulated in big cities. There are few organizations that work in rural areas. Young people who live in rural areas have less opportunity to participate in youth educational projects. In fact, these young people are much more vulnerable, and they most need our help. That is why the main idea of the organization is to encourage the participation of these young people. Our organization works at the national level, but the Erasmus+ program allows us to work at the international level too. At this stage, we have eight implemented and 12 approved projects.

Interests: Education, Other, Right to Information
I have been working with young people as a trainer-facilitator and youth worker for over six years. I am the co-founder and president of the HRRC. Therefore, I am a legal representative and a person responsible for the implementation of actions, as well as a contact person. Networking is the key to success in any work. Thus, we are trying to build one. We are members of the European Student Think Tank, Network of Think Tanks on the EU’s Eastern Partnership Policy, National Council of Youth Organizations of Georgia (NCYOG), Georgian National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum, Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum, and YouthProAktiv. And we already have many success stories from this collaboration. By joining this network, I expect to meet people/organizations with whom I/we share common values and with whom we can work in the future.
