On September 25, 2012, EPF, in cooperation with the Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights, and the Robert Bosch Stiftung organized seminar Georgia and Peaceful Conflict Resolution. Conceptualizing on civil society’s role in peace-building, the seminar took a comprehensive view – looking backward to what civil society has been able to accomplish and forward to post-conflict opportunities. The seminar also capitalized on the potential of both genders to contribute to conflict mitigation and peace building. This one-day event brought together practitioners in the areas of development and conflict transformation to discuss these dynamics and address the most effective process for building peace.

Eurasia Partnership Foundation is concerned about the facts of torture and inhumane treatment of prisoners in Georgia, which has been once again demonstrated by the video materials released on September 18. Despite the fact that such problems in the penitentiary system have been consistently underscored by the Georgia Public Defender and numerous human rights defender organizations, the Georgian authorities have not had the political will to remedy the situation.
