GDI, together with other CSOs has submitted two shadow reports for the Group of Experts on Action against Violence, against Women and Domestic Violence (GREVIO).

Both reports cover the performance of obligations undertaken by Georgia under the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence (also known as the “Istanbul Convention”).

The first shadow report was prepared under the leadership of the International Organization “Equality Now”, and it focuses on the challenges in the criminal justice system and the legislation of Georgia in addressing sexual violence crimes. It also provides recommendations for improving access to justice for sexual violence through improving legislation and criminal justice procedures.

The second report was prepared by the “Coalition for Equality” which apart from sexual violence covers the following issues: Equality and general obligations; Integrated policies and data collection; Prevention of violence against women and domestic violence; Substantive law; Investigation, prosecution, and procedural law and protective measures.
