EHRAC Bulletin Summer 2013

EHRAC Bulletin

Issue 19 of the EHRAC Bulletin is now available online. Please click the link below to read the full issue.

The Bulletin was been newly designed to mark EHRAC’s tenth anniversary year, which we will be celebrating with various events (see the website). This gives us the opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported us, or worked with us, over the last ten years – including our partner NGOs and lawyers, our legal team and interns, our funders, and of course our hardworking staff (past and present).

Our feature articles in this edition focus on Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Ukraine. On Russia, Vanessa Kogan (Russian Justice Initiative) analyses a recent landmark Strasbourg judgment concerning enforced disappearances in Chechnya and Jérémie Gilbert (University of East London) discusses the work of the Russian Association of Indigenous Peoples of the North (RAIPON) and its recent tussles with the Ministry of Justice. From Georgia, Tamta Mikeladze (Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association) discusses the eviction of IDPs in Georgia and Lia MuKhashavria (Human Rights Priority) considers the investigation of torture. Tural Hacibeyli (Azerbaijjan Lawyers Association) discusses freedom of assembly in Azerbaijan and Jane Gordon (Human Rights Consultant) analyses a recent ground-breaking judgment in one of EHRAC’s cases in which the European Court ordered Ukraine to reinstate Oleksandr Volkov, following his unfair dismissal as a Supreme Court judge.
