Georgia implemented ODIHR's Training Against Hate Crime for Law Enforcement (TAHCLE) programme in 2019 and the Prosecutors and Hate Crime Training Programme (PAHCT) in 2017.

Hate crime recorded by police
ODIHR recognizes Georgia's efforts to improve its hate crime recording and data collection as well as to make the hate crime data public. However, ODIHR observes that Georgia would benefit from strengthening the inclusion of, collaboration with, and facilitating work of, civil society working on hate crimes and with their victims.
ODIHR recalls that in the Ministerial Council Decisions 9/09 and 13/06, participating States have committed to taking a proactive and inclusive approach towards civil society which plays a key role in addressing hate crimes comprehensively, namely in reaching out to victims of hate crime and the entire victimized communities, and providing assistance to hate crime victims. ODIHR stands ready to support Georgia in meeting its relevant commitments through the provision of comprehensive resources and assistance.
The United Nations Human Rights Council Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) published relevant recommendations in its "Report from the thirty-seventh session: Compilation on Georgia."
