UN Women teamed up with the National Statistics Office of Georgia (GEOSTAT) to conduct a second nationwide study on violence against women in Georgia in 2022. Building on the initial study in 2017, the 2022 survey significantly expanded its methodology to include additional forms of intimate partner violence, non-partner violence, sexual harassment, stalking, as well as attitudes and social norms related to violence against women. A total of 3,300 women and 1,104 men were interviewed across Georgia.

The study revealed that 50.1% of women aged 15-69 in Georgia have experienced at least one form of violence in their lifetime. Certain population groups, such as women with lower levels of education, who marry early or live in rural areas, are particularly at risk of intimate partner or non-partner violence.

The findings will equip the Government of Georgia, nongovernmental organizations and other stakeholders with the data for evidence-based decisions in line with the SDG target 5.2 on eliminating all forms of VAW in the public and private spheres and respond to the data-collection obligation stated in Article 11 of the Istanbul Convention.

The study was conducted by GEOSTAT in partnership with UN Women within the framework of the project “Ending Violence against Women and Girls in Georgia”, funded by the European Union, and UN Women’s "Making Every Woman and Girl Count" programme in Europe and Central Asia (Women Count).
