“After finishing law school in my home country, Georgia, I started working as a regular lawyer. But after a while, I realized that if you perform your duties as a lawyer in an authoritarian regime, you just become part of the system. That is when I chose to become a policy lawyer, and started working with Young Lawyers Association, a union of young lawyers working to change the legal system. Many people within the legal system in Georgia have been there since the soviet times, and we believe that true democratic change takes new people with new thoughts.”

“As an activist for Young Lawyers Association, I ran into problems with the government, and the Scholars at Risk Network helped me find a place to breathe and think here at NYU. Here I study sociology of law and human rights.  And from here, it is easier for me to continue contributing to the fight for democratic change in Georgia.”

“Behind the new government’s democratic slogans is a semi authoritarian regime. I want to go back to Georgia, but I also want to live in a place, where I do not need to worry about tomorrow, and where I can expect my family to come home again when they leave – basic human security! And I hope to be part of the process that builds this society in Georgia.”
