Houses of Justice in Georgia: What Are They?

Where social innovations meet wondorous style.

Houses of Justice are probably the most prominent creations of Georgia in the post-Soviet period. Five of them are totally operating and seven more are going to be built soon.

A House of Justice is a special place where a citizen may contact with the state through specially developed infrastructure which has already became a brand in Georgia. Here, one may receive a passport and an ID with a microchip; apply for a citizenship or a residence permit; register an enterprise or real estate and also to receive any required certificate. In other words, Georgian authorities decided to put in a single building dozens of institutions Russians [and Belarusians, too — NN] have to apply to.

Such communication could have appeared only in a country exhausted by corruption, which, however, found true political will to alter the situation.

Before this, Georgia had been creating a single database of all country citizens for several rows. All the social services were merged into one House of Justice. The merge was not only territorial, but also ideological and system.

Houses of Justice work to inculcate in citizens respect of their country: not by police clubs but through being proud of Georgia. All the processes are held in Georgian, but signs also have inscriptions in English what makes visiting a House of Justice easier for foreigners.

The architecture of the buildings is also outstanding: architects combine national elements with modern ones producing really wondrous — but still extremely functional — constructions.
