"I learnt everything about completing an application to the European Court, as well as drafting replies to government’s observations, preparing witness statements, and submitting expert evidence. EHRAC provided clear guidance and support throughout."
Keti, Lawyer, Women’s Initiatives Supporting Group (WISG)
"EHRAC’s approach to co-operation with partners is absolutely unique in the region: [no other organisation] offers the combination of hands-on capacity-building by working on specific cases as well as the trainings offered. This approach is particularly relevant given the structural weaknesses of the national education systems for the legal professions, which, across the [target region], lack an emphasis on the development of practical skills."
Independent Evaluator of EHRAC’s capacity-building work
“I am delighted that justice prevailed in my case, and that I am now able to continue my professional activities without any further restrictions."
Rasul Jafarov, Human Rights Defender
“When the first cases by the Strasbourg Court were decided in favour of those who had suffered as a result of unlawful military operations in Chechnya, there was a dramatic shift in the mentality of hundreds and thousands of victims, who had, until that point, lost faith in justice."
Libkan Bazaeva, first applicant in an EHRAC-Memorial case
