European Human Rights Advocacy Centre

About Us

The European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) has been established at London Metropolitan University to assist individuals, lawyers and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) within the Russian Federation to take human rights cases to the European Court of Human Rights.

EHRAC is working in partnership with the Russian-based NGO 'Memorial', one of the leading Russian human rights organisations, as well as other NGOs and lawyers throughout the Russian Federation, including Chechnya. The project will be overseen by national and trans-national steering bodies.

In addition to human rights litigation, EHRAC will facilitate training on human rights law and procedure, will publish human rights training materials and will run internships based in Russia, London and Strasbourg.
