On March 19, Minister of Justice Tea Tsulukiani, Minister of Foreign Affairs Tamar Beruchashvili, U.S. Ambassador to Georgia Richard Norland, and USAID/Caucasus Deputy Mission Director, Thomas Morris will open the exhibition “Women Members of Constituent Assembly 1919-21.” The event will celebrate Women’s History Month and honor the first women in politics in modern Georgia. The exhibition highlights the election of the Constituent Assembly in 1919, which was unique in that every citizen of Georgia, despite their gender, was able to participate. 

This event is jointly organized by the Women’s Information Center (WIC) and the National Archives of Georgia. WIC implements the USAID-funded Women as Agents for Change and Empowerment project in Tbilisi, Mtskheta-Mtianeti, Kakheti, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Imereti and Gali. WIC works in partnership the Taso Foundation, the Association of Young Economists of Georgia, and the Institute for War and Peace Reporting. The project promotes women’s political participation and supports women’s political and economic empowerment.

USAID's Judicial Independence and Legal Empowerment Project supports and strengthens the judiciary as an independent yet equal branch of government, and improves Georgia’s commercial law system. Activities aim to improve the process by which judges are appointed, trained and disciplined to increase their independence and professionalism. The project also further strengthens the state free legal aid system and the legal NGO community, and increases public understanding of the role of the judiciary.

Georgia is a key U.S. ally in the Caucasus region and is a gateway for energy resources from the Caspian Sea to Europe and beyond. The Government of Georgia (GOG) is committed to advance democratic and economic reform, strengthen the rule of law, and improve social services. Georgia’s 2012 Parliamentary Elections were historic and represented the first peaceful, competitive, and constitutional transfer of power in the region.

Georgia’s stability is fundamental to the country’s sustained economic and democratic development.

Further, U.S. foreign policy goals seek the peaceful restoration of Georgia’s territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders. USAID’s programs continue to promote a more stable and integrated society capable of participating in the democratic process as an essential part of Georgia’s continued development.
