Project “Improvement of Students’ Civil Awareness in Terms of Elections”

Project “Improvement of Students’ Civil Awareness in Terms of Elections”Students make up the most active and emotional electorate in Georgia. Considering the legal age limit, majority of students will have to express their civil duty for the first time in the upcoming elections. Therefore, it is particularly important to provide them with maximum information on elections and conduct the election process in democratic and fair manner to help raise the civil awareness of students and enshrine democratic values in their mentality.

In this respect, it is of great importance to inform students and raise their awareness on the legal initiatives related to the elections in Georgia, Georgian Election Code, and the analysis of the process and results of the elections held in Georgia for the last 20 years. It is also necessary to consider international experience regarding and be aware of the election processes, election laws, election standards in our neighboring and partner countries, strengths and weaknesses in their election laws, and see how the election procedures comply with the requirements of the election laws, what the results of elections are in this or that particular country, and what repercussions the results of the elections found in the general public.
