The Democracy Research Institute (DRI) is a nascent organisation that is monitoring the human rights situation in Abkhazia and South Ossetia where the ‘Law on Occupied Territories of Georgia’ has made it challenging for organisations to operate. With EED’s support, the DRI will also focus its activities on strengthening the capacities of local activists who are working on human rights in both regions and forming a network between them.
