  • Working group on relations with administrations;
  • Working group on structure of self-governance;
  • Working group on declaration of students' rights.


The Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs has initiated the series of study tours for the members of the working groups. For today the representatives had business visits to Estonia (city of Tartu) and Germany (city of Saarland).

The working groups are responsible for preparation of recommendations and action plan in order to promote students' self-government in Georgia.
