Human Rights House Tbilisi

Human Rights House Tbilisi was established in Georgia in 2010. Today the House unites five organisations under its roof.

About

Human Rights House Tbilisi is a membership-based organisation that unites five civil society organisations working in the field of human rights. The member organisations have developed a joint strategy focusing on protecting and strengthening human rights defenders and human rights organisations, and raising awareness on human rights issues.

In a first for Georgia, the House organised a celebration on International Human Rights Defenders Day, promoting the role of defenders in society. The House and IREX Europe also organised the “National Leadership Academy” and held training for defenders and lawyers, as part of an ongoing long-term project.

The House held the first human rights fair in Tbilisi in June. International and local NGOs, as well as diplomatic corps, joined, ensuring the fair was a platform to exchange information and arrange future cooperation.

Recognising Georgia as the first shelter country for many defenders at risk fleeing from neighbouring countries, the House has developed a new strategy for 2019-2023 aiming to extend its protection programme.
