                                                           am grateful to all our partners for their valuable
                                                           support. The Constitutional Law Review will be
                                                           published quarterly and  distributed freely to
                                                           relevant local and international institutions.
                                                             The  Constitutional Law Review (CLR) strives
                                                           to be the medium   for the propagation of the
                                                           most important developments  at the Constitu-
tional Court in particular and, in general, the major legal developments in the country as well as the whole
region and all over the world. It will provide Georgian readers with reviews of decisions made by the European
Court of Human  Rights, European constitutional courts, and other world judicial and legal institutions. It will
also create a platform for professional debate and a critical analysis of the decisions made by the Constitutional
Court of Georgia.
  The journal will provide the international community with information originating from Georgia (and vice
versa) and encourage a strengthening of scientific/legal ties and the free exchange of ideas.
   My hope is that, during the coming years, the journal will continue to engage its readers by expanding their
thinking about our profession. In today's complex environment, the role of informed scholars, and critical and
reflective thinkers is essential for our continued development, especially for countries like Georgia.
   In the first issue we are privileged to have contributions from a few well-known Georgian as well as world
class scholars. I believe this trend will continue and that each edition will start to become filled with more and
more  interesting research papers.
  To conclude, I would like to note that this issue marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Euro-
pean Court of Human  Rights, and the 60th anniversary of the Council of Europe. We hope to witness the further
progress and success of these institutions, which have had a tremendous impact on the democratic develop-
ment  of the country as well as the whole region.
   I hope you will enjoy reading the CLR and that its contents will provide you with useful and stimulating in-
formation.

                                                           The President of the Constitutional Court of Georgia
                                                                                  George   Papuashvili
