U.S.-Georgia Strategic Partnership Commission: Democracy and Governance Working Group

Recognizing Georgia’s achievements to date, the Democracy Working Group focuses on further strengthening democratic institutions; political pluralism and electoral processes; media freedom, rule of law, and judicial independence; transparent, accountable, and participatory governance; labor rights; and increased civic participation. Recent and planned U.S.-funded programs have supported reform in all of these areas, and the Democracy Working Group strives to institutionalize past accomplishments while seeking new areas for reform.
