Executive Summary

In November 2015, Georgia appeared before the UN Human Rights Council for its second cycle of periodic
review. Georgia accepted 191 of 203 recommendations issued by member states and the Georgian
government noted 12 recommendations. The mid-term review is due in May 2018. The report covers the
implementation of accepted recommendation regarding equality and vulnerable groups such as, racial,
ethnic and religious minorities, foreigners and non-citizens, women, children, people with disabilities,
LGBT community and internally displaced people. The report also assesses the implementation of
recommendations to enhance national anti-discrimination institutions functioning in Georgia. The report
covers the period 2015-2018.

The report was crafted by the NGO Coalition for Equality, the non-formal alliance consisting of seven
organizations. The coalition was founded in April 2014 with the support of the Open Society Georgia
Foundation (OSGF), in the process of adopting the Law on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination.
The aim of the Coalition is to strengthen the mandate of anti-discrimination mechanisms, increase their
competencies and promote the effective struggle against discrimination.
