Beijing +20 National review, Georgia

Georgia became an independent state in 1991. Since independence, Georgia has made efforts to
improve the situation of women, but these efforts must be reviewed against the larger political
context. For more than 15 years, Georgia has been struggling with the challenges and difficulties of
the transition period on its way towards building a democratic state. Freedoms and opportunities
brought by the independence were followed by the political and economic uncertainties, struggling
with widespread unemployment, the emergence of structural poverty, lack of basic infrastructure
such electricity supply, and the collapse of social safety nets, increasing migration, civil war and
internal displacement after two unresolved ethnic conflicts that have affected both women and
men in Georgia.
