Objective(s) To enable mixed groups of legal professionals in Georgia to apply European standards for the effective investigation of the complaints of ill-treatment and safeguards for protection of the rights of detainees, and in particular to promote the direct application of these standards in the course of criminal procedure in Georgia.
To enhance the dialogue with the target group in Georgia. 
Output/Results The mixed groups of legal professionals were trained on European standards for the effective investigation of the complaints of ill-treatment and safeguards for protection of the rights of detainees based on the substantive guidance elaborated by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) and in the case law of the ECtHR. The seminar resulted in a comprehesive discussion on the above-mentioned subject and an exchange of experience among the participants who highlighted relevant examples from their own work.
