EHRAC Annual Report 2006
EHRAC’s 2006 Annual Report is now available online. Click the link below to read the report in full.
The European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) was established four years ago with financial backing from the European Commission. Since that time, it has developed a distinctive international human rights litigation programme, in collaboration with colleagues from Russia and Georgia. During that period – working on more than 100 cases at the European Court of Human Rights – we have been able to provide ongoing advice, support and assistance to the legal teams at Memorial, the Georgian Young Lawyers Association and a number of other NGOs. This Annual Report will give you an insight into what has been achieved.
At a time when human rights defenders all over the world face increasing pressures, we pay tribute to the dedicated professionalism of the lawyers and human rights activists with whom we work in both Russia and Georgia, and to the courage displayed by many of the litigants themselves.
