Georgia

The Government of Georgia has established protection for migrant women through Article 19 of the Law on Combating Trafficking. As part of the law's implementation, Georgia gives assistance and protection to victims of human trafficking and entitles any person or legal entity to establish a private, non-for-profit shelther to ensure security for migrant women. Part 2 of the law sets out key standards for shelter services. As a result of the law, multiple shelters were opened in major cities in Georgia.
