Access to Justice for Victims of Domestic Violence in Russia
Our new training programme begins in November. A series of training events is organised for young Russian lawyers, including workshops in St Petersburg run by Russian and UK experts, individual research projects and a study visit of the target group to the UK.
Members of Bar Associations from St Petersburg, the Leningrad Region and other towns in the Northwest of Russia, as well as lawyers working with local NGOs providing assistance to victims of domestic abuse, are invited to take part in the project activities.
As a result of this project, Russian lawyers will be able to defend the rights of victims of domestic abuse more efficiently and ensure that these persons get unhindered access to justice and a fair trial in accordance with the rule of law and international human rights standards.
