Human Rights for All – Phase 2

summary

“Human Rights for All” is a joint initiative of the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN), implemented by UNDP and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). It builds on the achievements of the previous phase of the programme in 2016-2019, aiming to assist Georgia in promoting respect for human rights, strengthening human rights protection in all areas and addressing the remaining issues of concern.

The programme is designed to ensure that all citizens – without exception, can enjoy their rights and freedoms that are safeguarded by the Constitution and major policy documents in line with Georgia’s national priorities and its international commitments under the Association Agreement with the European Union, the Sustainable Development Goals and the UN human rights treaties.

what we do

To achieve the goals and objectives of the programme, UNDP and OHCHR are working with a team of national and international partners, providing support in the following areas:

  • Implementation and monitoring of the national human rights policy and related frameworks.
  • Improvement of the independent investigation of crimes committed by law-enforcement officials.
  • Combatting torture and other forms of ill-treatment.
  • Personal data protection.
  • Addressing challenges to the protection of human rights in rural regions.
  • Addressing challenges in protecting the rights of the minority groups and people in vulnerable situations. This includes the LGBTQI+ community, persons with disabilities, national and ethnic minorities and other vulnerable groups.

expected results

  • Relevant public bodies are effective in developing, implementing and monitoring national human rights policy and related frameworks.
  • Law-enforcement bodies and human rights institutions fulfil their duties in creating and enforcing policies while ensuring oversight and transparency.
  • The minority groups and persons in vulnerable situations enjoy legal protection that translates into state and social practices.
  • Local authorities protect the rights of citizens with no exception.
  • Citizens are informed about their rights and freedoms. Public support to human rights values increases.
