Conflict and occupation abuses
The impact of armed conflict and occupation has been felt across EHRAC’s target region. International mechanisms are often the only effective avenue for victims to secure a measure of justice, and we support those impacted to take their cases internationally. Together with our partners, we have litigated cases stemming from multiple conflict and post-conflict zones including Chechnya, Nagorno-Karabakh, Eastern Ukraine, and North Ossetia.
These cases concern human rights issues such as arbitrary detentions, enforced disappearances, indiscriminate bombings, property rights, forced displacement and forced citizenship. Our ground-breaking litigation also aims at developing the Court’s case-law on complex issues surrounding armed conflict and occupation.
