The event “Human rights defenders under pressure: Challenges in litigating human rights violations in the former Soviet Union” took place on 27th of October in London

This panel discussion brought together prominent human rights defenders to discuss recent legislative changes, and the challenges they present to litigating cases of abuse in Russia and Azerbaijan, and the former Soviet Union more broadly, at domestic and international levels, including the European Court of Human Rights.

Representatives of Anti-Discrimination Centre Memorial,  the Committee Against Torture and human rights lawyer from Baku took part in this meeting.

This event became unique opportunity for a first-hand insight into how human rights lawyers and organisations must adapt to continue their work in difficult circumstances, if European and international human rights standards are to be upheld in the former Soviet Union.

This is a joint event of EHRAC with the Law Society of England and Wales.
