Georgian Procuracy Training

This EU TACIS funded programme managed by the British Council, was designed to assist the reform of the Prosecutor's Office (Procuracy) in Georgia. Since Georgia's "Rose Revolution" the Prosecutor's Office is undergoing reform, and HRSJ is proud to be part of this process.

Prof Bill Bowring was responsible for the project component, developing a curriculum and implementing a comprehensive programme of training. Approval was given for this work to be implemented by a team from the HRSJ. Bill Bowring, Philip Leach and Douwe Korff, together with a group of the best young Georgian experts, provided training in European human rights standards for each of the 660 prosecutors in Georgia.

Together with leading Georgian lawyers, the HRSJ team developed extensive training materials, and designed a two-day course that was delivered in 14 sessions in Tbilisi and two regions of Georgia (in Bakuriani and Chakvi). Prosecutors were tested on their knowledge at the beginning and end of the course, and participated in interactive group-work on typical problems facing prosecutors in their daily work.

The training was highly successful, and was enthusiastically received by the prosecutors and the wider legal community in Georgia.
