The seminar How to Defend Rights in Strasbourg? From a Formulation of Violations up to a Filling an Application Form was held in Voronezh on March 17-18, 2017.

The event was organized by the Institute for Law and Public Policy in partnership with the Human Rights House (Voronezh) within the framework of the project Enhancing Civic Engagement in Strategic Constitutional Litigation in Russia

The seminar was attended by 35 participants from the Voronezh, Belgorod and Lipetsk regions. Among them are attorneys (20), practicing lawyers (3), representatives of education sector (8).


The trainers, Maxim Timofeev, PhD in Law, Associate Professor at the European Humanities University (Vilnius), and Kirill Koroteev, legal director of the Human Rights Center Memorial, responsible for the business in the ECHR touched a variety of issues concerning the appeal to the European Court of Human Rights, namely the system of rights protection under the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the various aspects of a complaint to the ECHR, the procedure of conducting proceedings at the Court.

Some special practical training to determine the admissibility of applications was also conducted over the seminar on the example of specific cases etc. 


As part of the seminar the participants got the answers to the following questions:

• What are the criteria for admissibility and the specifics of their application at the European Court (how to file an appeal to be considered by the Court on the merits)?

• How to argue the appeal (to formulate what violation has occurred, to develop the applicant's position to choose its legal basis, to formulate a requirement before the European Court)?

• What are the typical mistakes of the applicants that the Registry of the Court face, and how to prevent them?

• What are the specifics of handling a case in the European Court?
