One way in which DRI worked to raise awareness on the topic of polarisation was through publications, including infographics, a discussion paper, and a media study, that allowed DRI to transfer its expertise and knowledge into forms accessible to Georgian citizens.
“The ten most common words used to criticise Georgian politics were not related to reforms, public policies or political decisions, but to the demonisation of political opponents.”
This was one of the findings of DRI's media study in which they monitored media coverage and political discourse during the local election campaigning.
"Many politicians portray the opposition as being mortal enemies rather than democratic opponents. […] Many of the monitored media channels re-post these social media messages, without providing analysis, presenting a second opinion or asking for a response."
Their findings, namely that the main TV channels were spreading strong polarisation messages and were actively furthering divisions, were shared with the public through a DRI article and presentations at various events.
