The goal of the project is to unite the civil sector under the idea of struggle against xenophobia and establish unified civil platform No to phobia. In the aforementioned format, it will be possible to carry out effective monitoring and, if necessary, respond on every single fact of using this rhetoric, on the one hand, and to contribute to correct formation of public opinion, on the other hand.
The project also plans to assist the political unions active in Georgia create or strengthen inter-party mechanisms which will ensure that all kinds of manifestations of xenophobia and discrimination are eradicated in political activity.
