We have continued to work closely with Memorial in Russia and the Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association in Georgia, and we have established strong links with a number of other human rights NGOs in both countries. We continue to expand the range of our work – as examples, the report presents our work on freedom of expression and association, environmental rights, issues relating to migration and ethnic discrimination, as well as egregious human rights violations in the North Caucasus.

During her recent visit to EHRAC, and the Human Rights and Social Justice Research Institute at London Metropolitan University, Hina Jilani, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary General on the situation of Human Rights Defenders, painted a stark picture of the increasing pressures and restrictions being placed on human rights defenders across the world. That is something that we have witnessed in our work – with our partner organisations facing increasing difficulties in carrying out their work of defending and promoting human rights.
