EUR 50.7m EU Aid to Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 14 Jul.'11 / 17:32

The European Commission adopted on July 13 the Annual Action Programme 2011 for Georgia, which will provide €50.73 million to support the country’s criminal justice system, conflict resolution efforts and internally displaced persons.

In respect of criminal justice system, the aid program will aim at improving juvenile justice in line with international standards and to enhance detention conditions in penitentiary institutions, according to European Commission’s press release.

Other measures will include support to improve compliance of the Georgian probation service and to strengthened capacity of the legal aid service.

The assistance program will continue EU’s aid to housing needs of the internally displaced persons and will also address IDPs’ socio-economic and livelihood needs.

“Georgia has already made significant progress in reforming its criminal justice system and in assisting its internally displaced populations. Important results have already been achieved, but more still needs to be done. The Programme adopted today will provide further assistance to help achieve these objectives," EU Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, Štefan Füle, said.
