  New Study: Results of the Study "Translations into Georgian since 1991" Now Available

The research presented in the current brochure "Translations into Georgian since 1991" focuses on the state of book translations from foreign languages into Georgian over the last 20 years. To provide the discussions on translations into Georgian with a context and a perspective, the Book Platform project and the Georgian Publishers and Booksellers Association commissioned a profound study on translations to two experts Ana Kopaliani and Salome Benidze that have based their work on primary statistical data and interviews with translators and publishers. The brochure also includes two commentaries on the research results by Georgian professionals in the book/translation sector. Importantly, the last chapter of the text lists six key recommendations that offer a perspective for the future to all actors in the book and translation sector in Georgia.

  Visiting News: New Resolution on Culture and Development Adopted by UN General Assembly

Further to the two resolutions adopted in 2010 and 2011, on December 12, 2013 the UN General Assembly adopted by consensus a third resolution on culture and development. Building on the recognition of the role of culture for development acknowledged in the previous resolutions, the new resolution represents an important breakthrough on the development agenda as it explicitly recognizes the direct linkages between culture and the 3 pillars of sustainable development (economic, social and environmental pillars) as well as peace and security. The text clearly states that culture is both an enabler and driver of sustainable development and further spells out culture's potential contribution to sustainable production and consumption patterns. Culture is also recognized as an important factor enriching quality education through the transmission of shared values, knowledge and skills. Finally, the resolution highlights the importance of giving due consideration to culture and sustainable development in the elaboration of the post 2015 development agenda.
