Civil society representatives and minority leaders from six EaP countries have attended one week conference in Georgia during 13-18 October focusing on issues related to the traditional values and human rights. The concepts of fundamental rights and traditional values were at the center of the discussion. In order to constructively create bridges between human rights and traditional values, participants explored traditional values on various levels and perspectives. A variety of questions arise on how majority communities perceive minority communities, and how these minority communities address the same issues within their own community or towards other communities. “The danger of religion is the mixture with traditional values” Rusudan Gotsiridze, Bishop of the Georgian Evangelical Baptist Church said about #traditionalvalues and #humanrights #HumanRightsandTraditionalValues
