On 2 November, the Head of the EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) Mr. Erik Høeg, visited Batumi Shota Rustaveli State University and delivered a public lecture on the Mission’s work, its achievements and related current challenges as it just marked its 10th year of deployment in Georgia. Students and academics attended the lecture.
The presentation was followed by a Q&A session, where students showed great interest in the Mission’s operated Hotline and the challenges faced by the EUMM in carrying out its mandate.
Local TV, including Adjara TV of Georgian Public Broadcaster, covered the public lecture and conducted a short interview available here.
