The international human rights organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) has published its 32nd annual report on human rights trends. World Report 2022 covers the events of 2021 in more than 100 countries.

Part of the report on Georgia states that in 2021, amid fierce confrontation between the ruling Georgian Dream and opposition parties, the country took a step back in a number of areas related to human rights.

"The lack of proper responsibility for crimes committed by law enforcement officers remained an unresolved problem. Other issues of concern included gross police interference with freedom of assembly, attacks on journalists and the growing threat to media freedom, institutionalization of children, violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) people, as well as unsafe working conditions."

According to HRW, the European Union, the United States and other Western partners have been helping Georgia overcome the political crisis throughout the year. The report says that in August, the European Union stated that Georgia had not fulfilled the conditions for judicial reform.
