What we want

In many countries around the world people are protesting against injustice, abuse of power, dire living conditions, and they are campaigning for higher standards. In the process new forms of citizens’ participation in political and administrative processes are evolving. We support all attempts to achieve greater democratisation and participation.

Publication

The publication "The city is ours" is the first attempts of the Heinrich Boell Foundation SC to systemically and critically analyze urban movements  emerged in Tbilisi in the recent years (2007-2015) and to define features and strategies of the main groups involved in the social movements in Tbilisi. At the same time, this publication clearly shows the readers and, above all, the urban movement activists the difficulties and problems that followed the protest movements.
