On 18 September 2013 within the framework of the project «Open Hall – Providing Access to Justice» the INGO «Committee Against Torture» holds a public lecture «Applying to the European Court of Human Rights». The lecture is free and open to all.

According to the ECHR statistics, from 2008 to 2012 the Court dealt with 61 331 applications against Russia. The European Court declared inadmissible or struck out 51 219 of them. 84% of the complaints were dismissed.

That is why it is indispensable for every applicant to know and understand the admissibility criteria applied by the Court for an application to be accepted for further examination of its merits.

An expert in international law of the INGO «Committee Against Torture» Olga Sadovskaya will speak on the rules and practice of applying to the European Court of Human Rights, will explain with examples some common mistakes that applicants make, and provide useful recommendations for those who are going to seek justice in Strasbourg.

The lecture starts at 11:00 a.m. on 18 September 2013 in Nizhny Novgorod State Regional Children Library (5 Zvezdinka str.).

Everyone is invited to participate. The lecture is free.
