Good governance: new EU-Council of Europe projects presented in Georgia

The European Union and the Council of Europe have presented four new projects to be carried out in Georgia under the third phase of the European Union and Council of Europe joint programme ‘Partnership for Good Governance’ (PGG III) in 2023-2027.

Four country-specific projects will be implemented in Georgia, with a total budget of €3 million, co-funded by the EU and the Council of Europe. They will aim at assisting Georgian authorities to further strengthen the independence of justice and the modernisation of court management, as well as enhancing the institutional and operational frameworks to prevent and combat corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing, and combating hate speech. The PGG will provide support to the country in the context of its European perspective agenda, in line with the Council of Europe standards.

At the regional level, Georgia will take part, together with other countries, in three projects aimed at fighting economic crime, promoting equality and non-discrimination, and facilitating access of women to justice.

The Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) is a joint initiative of the European Union and the Council of Europe for strengthening good governance in the Eastern Partnership region.
