The proposed project envisions raising awareness about the tools and methods of strengthening political culture and its components such as tolerance of opposing political beliefs, willingness to compromise, openness to criticism, constructive participation in issue-based debates, and recognizing the importance of stable electoral processes among the political parties. The proposed intervention will target young party members and women politicians, raising their awareness and commitment to improving political culture in their parties and in the country.
The project aims to enhance youth and women’s participation and representation of women’s issues in Georgian politics by:
Objective 1: Promote women politicians by enhancing their political expertise, raising awareness on intra-party democracy, the role of women in politics and effective communication with voters to identify and formulate policy issues reflecting the needs of their constituents.
Objective 2: Enhance the role of young politicians in consensus-based policy making by supporting their participation in the Interparty Council.
Objective 3: Promote political representation of the interests of vulnerable groups, especially women voters, and bring their concerns and issues to political agenda.
Objective 4: Promoting inter-party collaboration, including on issues important to women voters, which in turn will help identify party positions on certain policy areas and strengthen ideological identities of Georgian parties.
