Training for Facilitators of Asylum Seekers and Internationally Protected Persons
On July 27, 2022, representatives of the Equality Department of the Public Defender’s Office, with the support of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), held training on the right to equality and protection from discrimination for the facilitators of the community of asylum seekers and internationally protected persons in Georgia.
Within the framework of the training, representatives of the Equality Department introduced the training participants to the standards of equality and protection from discrimination, and, among other things, provided information on the constituent elements of discrimination, types of discrimination and human rights mechanisms. One training session was devoted to the issue of incitement to discrimination and expressions inciting discrimination. During the course of the training, participants had the opportunity, through practical exercises, to identify alleged cases of discrimination, which will help them detect and combat cases of discrimination in the future.
The Public Defender's Equality Department continues active efforts in the direction of raising the awareness of representatives of private and public spheres about protection against discrimination.
