Ensuring that workers are guaranteed basic labor rights is still a serious challenge in Georgia. The source of these problems is the state’s policy of inaction, which, on the one hand, is the result of the country’s transformation of its historical formations, and on the other hand, the realization by each of the Georgian governments that ensuring secure working conditions creates a space for people to think and act freely.
(closed project) In April-November 2016, the Human Rights Education and Monitoring Center (EMC) implemented a project 'Spotlight on Heavy Industry: The Case of Chiatura' with a main goal to identify and draw into spotlight the existing systemic problems, formulating them into social demands and attracting public attention, especially that of workers and activist- and interest groups.
