Human rights litigation

EHRAC works with partners to bring ground-breaking, strategic cases to the European Court of Human Rights and UN mechanisms.

We seek to secure justice for victims by challenging a wide range of human rights violations, prioritising cases that raise systemic issues in order to prevent further abuses from happening.

We are currently litigating over 300 cases before the European Court of Human Rights and other international bodies, including the UN Committee for the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the UN Human Rights Committee.

All our cases are litigated in collaboration with our partner NGOs and human rights lawyers based in Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia.
