The National Study on Violence against Women in Georgia 2017 conducted by National Staistics Office of Georgia (GeoStat) in partnership with UN Women with EU financial support constitutes the first nation-wide research on violence against women to be conducted in Georgia since 2009 and explores the prevalence of domestic violence, non-partner physical and sexual violence, as well as perceptions and awareness of women and men on gender and violence in Georgia. For the first time in Georgia, the study also generated data on prevalence of sexual harassment and stalking at the national level.
The study was carried out by UN Women in Georgia in partnership with the National Statistics Office in the framework of the project “Unite to Fight Violence against Women” generously supported by the European Union. The National Study on Violence against Women provides baselines for a number of SDG indicators and it allows to measure over time the effectiveness of state policies and development interventions in this field.
