On June 15 the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) came up with a report on discrimination of ethnic and other minorities in Georgia. According to Nils Muiznieks, the commission’s chair, Georgia proposes “positive initiatives in fighting discrimination on the grounds of “race”, colour, language, religion, nationality or national or ethnic origin”. The report also features legislation issues, status of minorities, combating discrimination in education and employment, and “race” issues in politics.
