On October 10, 2016 the Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies organized a public lecture for the representatives of ethnic Armenian community on “The Practice of Human Rights in Europe and Arbitration” at the regional office of the Foundation in Akhalkalaki, Samtskhe-Javakheti. The lecture was delivered Varlam Badzaghua, Chairman of the Georgian International Arbitration Center Board.
The lecture was held under the series of lectures on issues of nationwide importance. The aim of the series of presentations is to increase the capacity-building of ethnic minority community of Javakheti and to forge a common understanding and vision of the Georgian state among the citizens of Georgia despite their ethnic origin and promote a national integration process in line with the principles of modern, democratic state. As a result the minority community representatives are better equipped and empowered to become agents of change.
