14415.jpegAccording to the experts, each third woman in Georgia falls victim to violence. This is reported by GHN with reference to the results of a research conducted in Georgia in 2010. Also, according to the research, in most cases it is children who are subject to violence. Over 50 percent of the acts of violence against children are committed by their fathers, 46 percent by their mothers and 35 percent by teachers. Thus, 58 percent of children who took part in the poll do not feel protected outdoors, while 48 percent do not feel so at home.


As the research shows, 8 percent of children fall victims to incest, 4 percent - to sexual harassment on the part of their age mates and 20 percent - to sexual harassment on the part of the grown-ups. According to the experts, each forth case of calling the patrol police in Georgia is connected with violence in families.

A sociologic research in Georgia was held by National Violence Protection Network jointly with the Estonian Open Community Institute. The project has been realized for three years running, involving state officials, policemen, doctors and specialists engaged in the social sphere. The project is aimed at creating efficient mechanisms of fighting violence and providing timely assistance to the victims.
1 thousand 250 respondents took part in the current research.
