Agenda for Reform: Human Rights Priorities after the Georgian Revolution

A Human Rights Watch Briefing Paper, February 24, 2004

Legacy Link

After the November 23, 2003 revolution, leading to the formation of a new government and the election of Mikheil Saakashvili as president, an opportunity has opened to make real progress on human rights in Georgia. The new government must take up this opportunity by making respect for human rights the core of its reform program. Without this emphasis on human rights, abuses common during the ten-year Shevardnadze period risk becoming further entrenched.
