News Media Production and Capacity Building

There is no democracy without debate. There can be no adequate debate, without verifiable facts. These two simple notions gave birth to our flagship media product - Civil Georgia – a news website. Our small editorial team found that there was no information service on the market that provided balanced and reliable record of political and social developments, while supporting civic-minded debate on pressing issues.

Since 2001, Civil.ge has become the news outlet of record. With its archive spanning the last 20 years in open, searchable access, it became irreplaceable asset for scholars, investigative journalists, students wishing to look at the backstories of todays developments. A predominantly English-language outlet, it has also been consistently running the Georgian and Russian versions, widening its reach and audience. Two of its new, Georgian-language projects, Republic-100 and Europe Herald build on the original purpose with modern twist – spanning social media audiences, and giving even deeper context – both historical and geographic, to the news we cover every day.
