Defending human rights through strategic litigation

The Georgian Democracy Initiative and its team of lawyers won a landmark victory in the European Court of Human Rights last year. They are determined to keep fighting for human rights and to educate Georgians on democracy, human rights, and gender equality. Marine Kapanadze, director of GDI’s Political Rights programme, is focused on strategic litigation. EED support means that today, GDI can give particular attention to media freedom and defamation cases brought by state authorities against privately-owned broadcasting companies.
