Action, research and documentation (ECMI Synergy Wheel stories) - European Centre for Minority IssuesNeeds and priorities of minority women in Georgia are about to be assessed. European Centre for Minority Issues Caucasus is tasked by UN Women to do the job.

UN Women in Georgia has tasked ECMI Caucasus to conduct a survey and a needs assessment in two Georgian regions. Women belonging to minority populations are the studies’ objectives, when ECMI performs the task in the multiethnic Samtskhe-Javakheti and Kakheti regions. 

The surveys will mainly address Armenian, Azeri, Avari, Udi and Ossetian women. In addition, a special survey has been commissioned on assessing the situation of Roma and Meskhetian women.

The survey covers also services delivered by public administration to the populations in local municipalities and villages; this includes social services, infrastructure, education and especially access to learn the Georgian language. The survey also includes employment opportunities and other forms of gender equality measures.

The first findings of the assessment are expected to be available end of November 2013.
