In this issue of the EHRAC Bulletin, Dr. Clara Sandoval of the University of Essex discusses the remarkable approach to redress which has been developed by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, and asks what the European Court could learn. There are three articles focusing on Georgia: Sophio Japaridze of Interights considers whether lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are protected against discrimination and hate crime in Georgia; Natia Katsitadze of the Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association (GYLA) analyses the extent of implementation of the European Court’s judgment in Kiladze v Georgia; and Mariam Uberi weighs up the Georgian guardianship procedure against the requirements of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Also in this edition, Olga Tseitlina (EHRAC-Memorial HRC) considers recent Article 3 judgments regarding extradition to CIS countries, Siranush Sahakyan of ‘Protection of Rights without Borders’ discusses a landmark judgment concerning conscientious objection (Bayatyan v Armenia) and there is also a feature on our case relating to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict which was recently declared admissible by the Grand Chamber of the European Court (Sargsyan v Azerbaijan).
