The Charter and the notion of responsibility in the Georgian context

Georgia and countries of Caucasus

The group of diffusion of the Charter of Human Responsibilities in Georgia and in the countries of Caucasus was created in May 2006, after two or three years of preparation. Several members of our group got to know the existence of this Charter thanks to our friend Ina Ranson.

In October 2004, Edith Sizoo came to Tbilissi to give a series of conferences-debates on the Charter, together with Ina Ranson. These meetings interested a lot the people. We asked ourselves many questions. For example:

- Everything is changing here today. To define my responsibilities - to what tradition do I have to refer?
- What is new in this Charter in relation to the existing ethical traditions?
- What do we mean in the Western countries by "civil society"?

Several persons then expressed the desire to participate in a group of reflection and action on the Charter.
