Summary Conclusions

A participative process of consultations, focus groups and interviews were held with a wide range of stakeholders from the government, civil society, media and business sectors in Tbilisi and the regions of Georgia, aimed at addressing the following issues:

  • Enabling the environment for CSO activities in Georgia;
  • CSO relations with various actors;
  • Capacities and needs of CSOs to engage in policy dialogue.

The study concludes that the legal environment governing the registration and operations of CSOs in Georgia remained generally favourable for years. The political and institutional framework in Georgia is in general supportive of an enhanced role for CSOs in public policy dialogue. Over the past five years, CSOs have become more powerful and capable of influencing policy processes; many local and international observers maintain that the peaceful transition of power following the 2012 parliamentary elections was due to the active and constructive role played by CSOs.

The study was conducted by independent experts. The empirical research was carried by the Institute of Social Studies and Analysis (ISSA) from February to May 2014.
