Georgia has to counter disinformation in Russia’s long shadow
There is a lot of talk in the past years about anti-democratic powers “weaponizing” information as a part of hybrid military operations, and for achieving their foreign policy objectives of undermining the democratic governments.
United Nations Association of Georgia (UNA Georgia) is a local nonprofit that has worked since 1995 to encourage, support and safeguard the democratic aspirations of the people of Georgia. UNAG works to protect human rights, promote freedom of speech, advance good governance, and stimulate meaningful national discussions through encouraging citizen participation in the processes and decisions that affect their lives.
UNAG has been a member of the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) since 1996, a non-governmental body that unites more than 100 UNAs worldwide. In 2003, UNAG became the recipient of World Tolerance Award by the Friends of United Nations, and the Champion of Tolerance award in 2010 by the Ethnic Minority Council at the Public Defender of Georgia, for UNAG’s contribution to promoting tolerance and diversity in Georgia.
